Asking doctors to send reports of patients at the earliest under a health scheme, Jharkhand health minister Ramchandra Chandravanshi today said private practice by government doctors will not be tolerated.

"The Civil Surgeon should take quick action under the Mukhya Mantri Asadhya Rog Yozana (scheme for critical disease) because late delivery of reports will be detrimental to patients," Chandravanshi said and warned doctors against private practice.

"Private practice (by doctors) will not be tolerated at all," an official release said quoting the minister said adding works of all doctors would be reviewed now.

Palamau, Dumka and Hazaribagh would soon have medical college facilities, he said adding, work would soon start in Chaibasa, Bokaro and Koderma.

Saying that work was seen during 20 years of governance, he called upon everyone to eliminate malnourishment and child mortality through publicity.
