DGHS, health ministry not at loggerheads: Zahid Maleque

Health Minister Zahid Maleque today said that his ministry and the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) do not have any problems with each other.

The ministry can seek explanation from DGHS which is part of the government's job, he said.

The government is carrying out enquiries into the illegal activities of JKG Group and Regent Hospital. If the allegations are found to be true, then stern action would be taken against them. "Exemplary action must be taken against those who pampered them," he said.

"The ministry and directorate, both are organs of the government which are currently working round the clock to tackle the coronavirus situation. A letter has been sent to the directorate from the ministry seeking explanation about the recent activities of JKG Group and Regent Hospital. It is only a part of the administrative and bureaucratic work of the government," he added.

After briefing reporters, the health minister had separate meetings with Health Services Secretary Abdul Mannan and Health Education Secretary Md Ali Noor.

During the meeting, he directed the secretaries to remain alert about whether general people are being deprived of any services.

The minister also instructed to take immediate action if any clinic or hospital is found involved in irregularities.
