As Pinaray goes to US for treatment, BJP questions 'unfriendly' attitude of state-run hospitals

Thiruvananthapuram: The BJP Kerala unit questioned the state-run Medical College hospitals' "unfriendly" attitude on Saturday, even as Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan prepares to travel to the United States for medical treatment.

Sobha Surendran, a prominent BJP politician, asked Vijayan for his opinion on a few problems on her Facebook page before leaving for the United States.

"Vijayan should seek treatment in the United States, but we in Kerala who rely on state-run health care facilities want to know why the hospitals are in such a bad state," said Surendran, who finished second in the 2021 Assembly elections in a constituency in the capital district, pushing the Congress candidate to third place.

Surendran, who is known for her razor-sharp tongue, enumerated instances where state-run health institutions have been found wanting, including a "goof-up" at the Kottayam Medical College hospital on Thursday, when a con woman posing as a dotor walked into the gynaecology ward and took away a 3-day old baby under the guise of special treatment. The kidnapping attempt was thwarted thanks to vigilant residents and police.
