The post of cook in the 25-bed Junga Hospital has been vacant for the past several years due to which patients have to buy food from outside. Told that there is a great need for surgeons, orthopedics, and especially gynecologists in this hospital. Prem Thakur has demanded from the government that the vacant posts in all the health institutions of Junga tehsil should be filled soon.
