However, While talking to GMCH 32 Medical Superintendent Dr Ravi Gupta, he said this is quite shocking to know that Bio Medical Waste is openly sold like this. Dr Ashwani Dalal is incharge of this department and he is the better person to answer on this, though we would take strictest possible action over this.
Whereas when contacted Dr Ashwani Dalal, He certainly believed in passing the buck and said that Our Nurse (Sister) Navjot is better person to answer on this. This is clear from this statement that this kind of Casual approach of Dr Ashwani Dalal made the Bio Medical Waste a subject of mockery.
