Bureaucratic indecision has resulted in the wastage of medicines worth Rs 27 lakh. The medicines bought about three years ago were meant for the rural poor undergoing treatment at Madhya Pradesh’s Hoshangabad government hospital. Sources said a huge consignment of medicines, now past their expiry date, is lying in a warehouse in Harda district, about 90km away from Hoshangabad. And there is no knowing how this consignment will be disposed of. Sources in the state health department said there was no co-ordination between the chief medical health offices (CMHO) of the districts.
