Larkana: The District Health Office of Larkana has been running without a proper District Health Officer since February 22, 2014 as no senior doctor has so far been posted here.
Sources said that Dr. Khalilullah Shaikh (BSP-19) working as DHO Larkana was transferred and posted first as Police Surgeon (BS-20) on 19th February and then his transfer notification was amended on February 21 by Services, General Administration and Coordination Department and he was posted as Senior Casualty Medical Officer. However, this was notification was again amended and he posted him as Senior Medical Officer against an existing vacancy of BS-19 at Chandka Medical College Hospital, Larkana.
The sources said that the bureaucracy is posting junior doctors on senior posts on political grounds. In this connection frequent transfers and postings are made to accommodate the blue-eyed boys. They said a senior officer should be transferred to fill the vacant post of DHO Larkana so that this important office could be run properly.
