NHRC asks Odisha Govt improve public health centres in State

“Poor health service, high malnutrition cases, certain alleged starvation deaths and bad shape of anganwadi centres are some of the major concerns of the Commission,” NHRC member S C Sinha told reporters after the panel’s three-day camp session in Odisha.

On the Commission’s recommendations to the state government, Sinha said, “We have made several recommendations on improvement in mid-day meal for children, improvement of public health centres, inadequate doctors in rural pockets, implementation of MGNREGA and issue of migrant labourers.”

Though the Commission has its own organisation network to undertake survey of different programmes, Sinha said NHRC used to do surprise checking and get feed back. He said the Commission would like to monitor different social welfare schemes being implemented by the state government.

Besides, during its camp sitting, the Commission recommended monetary recommendations to the victims in three cases totaling Rs 5.30 lakh, issued show cause notices in eight cases and ordered enhancement of compensation amount in two cases. The Commission also ordered closure of three cases, said Sinha.
