Patna: Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) leader Pappu Yadav, who has waged a war against Bihar doctors and hospitals for providing poor service and exploiting underprivileged patients, held a kangaroo court of sort outside the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (IGIMS) in Patna to hear from the disgruntled patients and their family members.

Calling it 'Aapka Sevak, Aapke Dwar', the Madhepura MP held his 'durbar' under a tree as patients and their family members surrounded him to tell their harrowing accounts with the hospital or the doctors.

People attending the 'court' told Yadav how the doctors did not make routine rounds in the hospital and nurses ignored them all the time. On Sundays, things are even worse as there are hardly any doctors on duty to attend to the patients. Pathologists are also not available and sometimes it takes days to get a blood or urine test result. People with serious illness also have to wait hours, sometimes days, to get admitted in the Emergency, patients or their family members told the MP.

During his show and tell, Yadav paid for the treatment of 66 patients.

Meanwhile, IGIMS officials expressed their resentment against Pappu Yadav's latest stunt saying he had no official permission to hold his 'court' inside the hospital premise.

Hospital Director Prof. N R Biswas, in a letter to Home Secretary, lodged his complaint against the JAP leader saying neither he had acquired proper permission to hold a meeting at the hospital nor had he informed the hospital in advance about his visit.

Patna District Magistrate (DM) Kumar Ravi, however, said that Yadav did have permission to hold the meeting on two conditions – one prohibiting him from using any megaphone and second, he could not hold a political meeting inside the hospital premises.
