The issue of building a hospital in northern Haridwar will rise once again during the election. The Corporation Board had passed the proposal to give land at around Rs 6.50 crores near Dudhadhari Chowk at the time of CM Harish Rawat. Due to conflicts in planning papers, no work was done to construct the hospital on the ground. The population of North Haridwar is around 50 thousand. The demand for government hospitals in this area has been going on for years. People of Northern Haridwar are not able to get government health services during the seasons, including the travel season, Kawand Mela. Along with the highway, the situation of the jam continues on the inner roads of the city.
In such circumstances, it is difficult to bring the patient to a district hospital. The people of the area have been mobilized several times over this issue. Besides the Chief Minister, the local people’s delegation has been received from the governor. The opening of a hospital in northern Haridwar is a major issue. When did the case happen: On November 26, 2016 in the Janata Darbar held in Rishikul Ayurvedic College Auditorium, the then Chief Minister Harish Rawat announced the opening of the CHC in Northern Haridwar. The Corporation Board passed the proposal of land sought for the hospital.
CMO has sent a proposal of about 28 crore rupees to build a 50-bed hospital building including the cost of the land and send it to the Director General of Health. The proposal was not sent to the government beyond the Director General’s Office. Later Chief Minister Trivendra Rawat came to Haridwar and announced the opening of PHC in North Haridwar. Following the correspondence of IT worker Manoj Nishad, CMO Haridwar sent a 31-bed proposal on the direction of the Director General.
