The doctors, including two locals identified as Dr Yahia Khan, Dr Meijinlu Lousa, Dr Laljen Gangte and Dr Vunghoihkim Simte were all posted at Parbung PHC but except for their first visit they have been eluding the interior ever since, said a source. The district administration axed this time and it was the second such recommendation on the four doctors. On April 25, 2008 a letter recommending their termination was dispatched to the Director Health Missions, Manipur. As the four were adamant enough to ignore such development and the Director still lenient in its approach another recommendation was sent on July 4. A highly placed source said that the recommendation was made as reports obtained from Army and Assam Rifles besides the SDO/BDO contradicts the medical department reports of the four attending the CHC. The Chief Medical Officers – present and his predecessors have given their consent for payment of salaries to the doctors who elude their duty allegedly on the ground that they have insincerely attended their duties. When questioned by the concern authority the CMOs were said to have justified their move by claiming that they are relying on the information given by the MO concern. Show-cause notices in this regard have been issued to the CMO and MO concerned, said the source. Besides the doctors, most of the medical staff under Parbung CHC was eluding their place posting, one ANM and a Ward Boy has hired a local sub-let to represent them. While another doctor, Dr C Tonsing is said to have at least visit the CHC once every month and stationed himself for a day or two.
