According to government’s new rule a Death Certificate can be issue only by a physician, this has caused a lot of inconvenience to the people whose relatives have expired at home.
“Should these people grieve or knock the doors of physician doctors to find get a Death Certificate?” questioned Dr. Bhatikar.
“Don’t make people run for Death Certificates , as it’s hardest time. This is taking a toll on them emotionally, as after losing their loved ones the government is making them run around to look for a certificate by a Doctor during this difficult time of pandemic,” he added.
Ponda’s Sub-district Hospital is converted into Covid Hospital. The authorities had promised that they would provide the best of facilities during this pandemic however the reality is far from the truth as the patients do not get access to ambulance on time. Moreover, the medical waste which is getting piled up near the hospital poses a great health hazard for the public.

In the coming Zilla Panchayat elections the Chief Minister had assured five thousand jobs however this was just a false promise to lure voters Dr. Bhatikar said.
