Imphal, Feb 1

The main road leading to one of the premier private Health service provider – the Shija Hospital and Research Institute has been blocked today since early morning. An eyewitness said that even Ambulance was told to take another road that is leading to the hospital which is never convenient as the road infrastructures leading to Shija Hospital are in the most deteriorating condition besides the length.

Imphal Times contacted the Imphal West DC office through telephone no 03852451188, to enquire about the reason for blocking the road. However, a lady employee working in the DC office, who picked the call said that she did not know why the road is being blocked and for what reason. She also stated that she had no idea whether the party blocking the road had taken permission from the district administration or not.

Shija Hospital is the hope of much critical illness and almost all people chose the hospital as they hope the hospital as severe. A patient who went for routine check up have to turn back to find another route to reach the hospital. The police station (Lamphel) which is close to the place where the road block were also not seen at the place.

Many costly cars were seen parked at the side where the road was blocked and many patients in need of treatment expressed frustration to Imphal Times on why the road is being closed and why should the district administration allow permission for such road blocked at that important route.
