The hospital administration is also seeking the support of the MLA and Member of Parliament to get a new bore well in the hospital to deal with the issue. The hospital sources said that water scarcity is taking place in the hospital due to the dried-up bore wells and out-of-order motor pump of one of the bore wells.
Moreover, the bout of pre-monsoon showers failed to provide any relief and the hospital is not getting enough water to run the facilities. According to the staff, water scarcity is prevailing in the hospital for last two weeks but it intensified in the last couple of days and the attendants can also be seen running around the campus to get water for their patients.
