Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is taking great initiatives to stop pollution of water bodies this festive season by implementing a ban on Plaster of Paris (POP) idols. It has held a meetings with mandals and idol makers. Mandals are requested not to purchase idols made of plaster of paris. Idol makers are asked to make idols of clay and not mix pop with clay. NMC has also asked the general public to lend their support for their success. Though the ban on pop idols had been voiced earlier but it has been implemented now.
There has been a marked reduce in patients visiting Government Medical College and Hostel (GMCH) due to lack of basic amenities in hospital premises. There is lack of basic drugs, syringes, plasters and advanced surgical equipments. Patients face lots of problems due to lack of proper medicines.
People visit other hospitals rather than opting for GMCH as they feel more safe at the other place. Surgical dealers have stopped supplying goods to the hospital due to a big outstanding bill.
