The collector had also asked the officials to release the salary of the doctors on the basis of their attendance in the hospitals.

Illayaraja T has also asked the chief medical and health officer and the civil surgeon to regularly visit the hospitals and to ensure proper facilities for the patients as no negligence would be tolerated.

Earlier, he also instructed that show cause notice be issued to the chief municipal officer of Gautampura and the district education officer for not taking appropriate action in resolving the cases of CM Helpline and for being absent without permission in the meeting.
