Janakpurdham, September 4:
Local residents padlocked a Primary Health Centre in Deuri Parawaha of Dhanusha district today, to protest the absence of health workers in the centre. A joint team of health centre management committee and the locals had found only a peon present in the centre. The centre has quotas for a doctor, a health assistant, an Assistant Health Worker, an Auxiliary Nurse Midwife and other staffers.
â€œWe padlocked the centre after the District Public Health Office, Dhanusha ignored our complaints about the irregularities in the centre,â€ a local, Sanjaya Kumar Misra said.
