Two buses lie in ruins at Osmania General Hospital

There was no proper maintenance carried out from time to time, says senior professor.

Hyderabad: Two buses bought in 1989 are lying in a dilapidated condition in the Osmania Medical College, unused. Senior professors in the college said that when Dr M. Ramani was the principal, she had written to the then director of Health and Medical education for air-conditioned buses, but now she is not pushing the case.

A senior professor said, “The buses were stopped being operated as students had to get down and push as they were in a bad state. There was no proper maintenance carried out from time to time. A college bus is mandatory as students have to travel to various affiliated hospitals and also on outdoor tours.”

When contacted, Dr M. Ramani said, “CM K. Chandrashekar Reddy has clearly said that three air-conditioned buses will be procured for Osmania Medical College. I have been working on it and it is wrong to say that I didn’t get it sanctioned. It was on the agenda and we were pushing for it since a long time.” Not only OMC but also Gandhi Medical College, Kakatiya Medical College and Nizamabad Medical College are going to get three new buses.
