Bhubaneswar, Nov 27 (LocalWire): The state government today ordered an inquiry into an alleged bid to transfer the ownership of a city-based private hospital.
Congress MLA Tara Prasad Bahinipati said in the Assembly that the city-based hospital has infringed the law and has orchestrated a ploy to sell it to the foreign national.
Deputy leader of Opposition and BJP lawmaker Bishnu Charan Sethi also echoed similar concern and sought a high-level probe into it.
An inquiry committee comprising senior officials of the health and family welfare department has been constituted.
The inquiring authorities have already inspected the hospital and verified the relevant documents in this connection, health minister Naba Das said.
The private hospital has acquired land from the government at a subsidized price.
Under no circumstances, it could dispose that off.
The entire incident should be probed thoroughly, Congress lawmaker Tara Prasad Bahinipati told the LocalWire.
