JAMMU: The state functionary of J&K Aam Aadmi Party –Mr. Ram Singh Chauhan & Mr. Kuldeep Kumar Rao toured Reasi area in the fateful day of ill fated tragedy in Baba Siarh, Tehsil Reasi and were shocked to find that Postmortem of dead tourists was conducted in open near bushes & as no Ambulance was available to carry the dead & injured to District Hospital Reasi where only one Doctor was available. The AAP activists noted with deep concern that if this is the condition at District H/Q. What could be the fate of poor villagers in rural areas? They said that the claim of state government in streamlining the Health sector stating it to be at S. No.1 amongst all states is totally hollow & stands exposed. 

In view of great resentment of general public and kins of deceased & injured, the duo urged upon the Governor to hold impartial inquiry into the lapses & absence of staff on duty. The duo were further apprised by the locals that District Hospital has been shifted to about 6 kms from town as a result town population has been left on the mercy of God. They demanded the first aid with X-ray & tests be got done in the old Hospital Reasi so that common town people do not suffer for want of immediate medi-care on spot.
