A visit to these heath centers by this reporter revealed the appalling condition owing to absence of maintenance and proper upkeep by the authorities while some of the centers were seen running in raw shops and some were found closed.

Locals blamed the concerned authorities for their “insensitive attitude” towards the centres and alleged that they lack proper staff and basic infrastructure required for its smooth functioning.

“First of all, these health centers need to be made sectioned and then the government should pay attention to them so that we poor people can breathe a sigh of relief, ” they said, adding that

“They are of no use. We still have to go to Bandipora hospital for a normal treatment and looking at them, it looks like the government is joking with us, ” Sabreena a student said, adding that these centers have fallen victim to the inattention of the government.
