Hyderabad: Speaking to media persons after conducting an exhaustive tour across OGH premises for over an hour the Chief Minister said, “I have spoken to doctors and patients. I strongly feel that they need to be shifted out within a week to different government hospitals in the city. We will take a private building if needed till the construction of the proposed twin towers that would house OGH.”

Apologising for delaying his visit to OGH even after Health Minister C Laxma Reddy communicated to him the severity of the situation, KCR observed, “OGH is in its worst possible condition. Every building here looks as if it is about to collapse. This is not the right place to treat patients. We will not risk the lives of hundreds of patients, doctors, nursing students, technicians and other people working in the hospital in the name of heritage.

OGH was established 105 years back and the building constructed hundreds of years back. Retaining the structure that causes inconvenience to so many people does not make sense. I will request Governor E S L Narasimhan and the High Court Chief Justice to examine the conditions prevailing at OGH. I am sure they will never allow the hospital to function in the prevailing conditions in the interest of patients and doctors,” he said.

Very soon, we plan to build twin towers at this very place with ultra-modern facilities along with a nursing college.” Elaborating on the shifting of OGH, he said, “The health minister, principal secretary health, doctors, health secretary along with the superintendent will soon take an appropriate decision.” The famous OGH is strategically located as people from different places like Gulbarga, Bidar and Maharashtra come down here for treatment.
