Ctg journos hold protest rally

STAFF REPORTER, Ctg

A number of journalists in port city yesterday organised a protest programme on the premises of Chattogram Press Club protesting the death of a two years old Raifa Khan due to alleged wrong treatment. They also protested the alleged threat of the Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) leaders to stop the treatment closing the hospitals in Chattogram. Raifa Khan, daughter of journalist Rubel Khan, who was suffering from cold and sore throat problem, died at Max Hospital in the city due to “wrong treatment” on early Friday.

In addition to journalists, several socio-cultural organisations, Bangladesh Awami League leaders, Bangladesh Chhatra League leaders, several journalists’ organisations of different upazilas in Chattogram also joined the rally to express solidarity. Describing Raifa’s death as a murder, the speakers demanded the closure of Max Hospital, arrest of guilty doctors, nurses, cancellation of their certificates, and an investigation against Dr Faisal Iqbal Chy, general secretary of the Chattogram, unit of the BMA by the Anti Corruption Commission. He had threatened to shut down hospitals in Chattogram because doctors were being accused of being negligent.

The people also demanded demand an end to anarchy in healthcare, and justice for the victims of wrong treatment.

Many relatives of the victims, who died in alleged wrong treatment .also spoke in the rally. Hasan Ferdous, general secretary of Chattogram Union for Journalists (CUJ) demanded to cancel the certificates of the ‘guilty’ doctors and to stop the anarchy in healthcare in the country. He also declared another protest programme on the premises of Chattogram Shaheed Minar and urged the people all walks of the life to join the programme.

Meanwhile, an investigation team of the Department of Health, led by Dr Kazi Jahangir Alam, director, DoF, found certain anomalies.

Dr Kazi Jahangir Alam said on Sunday night, “They are running the hospital without the permission from DoH and Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC). We will take action against them soon.” In a parallel event, doctors led by BMA leaders held a demonstration at the Chattogram Medical College Hospital by blocking the road from Chawkbazar to Probortak circle for two hours from 12 noon to 2pm, causing acute inconvenience to commuters.  Police later cleared the blockade
