Bhubaneswar: Huge quantities of unexpired medicines were found on the roadside at Gochhabari in Nayagarh district, much to the worry of common people, who don’t get free medicines under the Niramaya scheme often.
According to reports, some villagers first saw medicines lying on the roadside near a bridge early this morning and informed mediaperons and police. It was marked that a majority of medicines were yet to expire.
“When people are not getting medicines in hospitals, wasting of such a huge quantity of medicines is a sheer carelessness of the concerned authorities. There should be a proper prove and the errant should be punished,” said villagers.
When contacted, Nayagarh CDMO Dr Shweta Kumar Mohapatra said an investigation would be conducted soon and stringent action would be taken against all found guilty.
