Wanaparthy: This is yet another example for official negligence. The condition of the Primary Health Centre (PHC) at Kadukuntla in Mahbubnagar district is a classic example of neglect of health care of rural population. This is the only PHC in the entire Wanaparthy mandal. This 30-bedded centre is supposed to serve the poor people from almost 23 villages and a sizable number of thandas.

But things are entirely different now. There are only three beds that are functioning properly. The doctor usually visits on Wednesday only. People, who need medical assistance, have to come on that day or a staff nurse attends all other days. Naresh, a villager of Kadukuntla said, “State Road Transport Corporation operates bus services from Wanaparthy to Kadukuntla for every hour. But patients from neighbouring villages do not visit this centre.”

“Though this PHC has 30-bed capacity, there are three private clinics being run successfully in the area. But people do not show interest to go to this centre,” Krishnaiah, another villager said. When this correspondent visited the centre at 10 o’clock on Wednesday, the doctor was not seen anywhere.
