Continuing with her surprise visits to state-run hospitals to check operations there, Chief Minister today went to the SSKM hospital to check the overall operations there.

Banerjee, who is also the state Health minister, paid a visit to the SSKM hospital before going to the secretariat Nabanna this afternoon.

It was learnt that she directed city Mayor to employ workers of Municipal Corporation under the 100-day scheme to look into the cleanliness at the hospital.

"On the direction of the Chief Minister, KMC will from now look into the cleanliness at the SSKM hospital," city Mayor Sovan Chatterjee said today.

Incidentally, Banerjee had paid a surprise visit to Sambhunath Pandit hospital and Ramrick Das Harlalka hospital yesterday.

The waste management in state-run hospitals is done by the Public Works Department (PWD) and not by Municipal Corporation (KMC).

At the SSKM, Banerjee spoke to senior officials of the hospital as well as staff members.
