“Even the ambulance has no driver while as BUMS doctor posted at Aripal centre is working in Sub District hospital,” residents rued.
The locals of Litter area said that the health centre there caters dozens of villages with the nearest sub-district or district hospital being at least 15 kms far from Litter, however, due to lack of electricity, X-Ray machine and doctors, patients are forced to visit other hospitals.
