Agartala, April 4 (TIWN): When there are reports of alarming rise in diabetic patients in the state, the diabetic department at the GBP hospital was shut down by government. The North East Council had sanctioned Rs 1.33 crores in 2003 for setting up a modernized endocrilogy – diabetic – metabolic care unit at GBP hospital.

Under the scheme fund was allotted for procuring latest instruments, training of doctors and nurses etc. After receipt of  fund, the department   started  with 13 bedded facilities  started at super specialty block   of  the hospital.  After few days government ordered to  close down the department. All the procured equipments was shifted to other departments.

An eye department was opened in that place.Every day scores of diabetic  patients are coming for treatment at GBP hospital. There are only three diabetic  doctors in the state’s primer hospital, Dr. Sajal  Debbarma, Dr. Ranjan Bhowmik and Dr. Sushanta Sen. Among them Dr. is deputy super of the hospital, he remains busy with administrative works  maximum time. Every year  there are report of alarming rise in diabetic patients in the state, 6 percent of the total patient are diabetic. Now the question is why the government was hurry in getting the fund sanctioned for opening a diabetics department?  In the state there is not a single endocrinologist in the state, but the government got fund for this ten years back,
