Her Excellency

President of India

Her Excellency ,

We the undersigned draw your kind attention to the fact that Employees State Insurance Corporation under the Government of India, Ministry of  Labour has taken a decision in principle to establish 12 ESI Super Specialty Hospital & Medical colleges in different states of India. Incidentally Odisha which is a backward state particularly in health sector has got one for which entire funding will be made by ESI Corporation . The said fund is the accumulation of surplus and unutilized money of Insured Persons (IPs) working in different industries and establishments in the country.   It is therefore necessary that such medical College and Hospital ought to be established in such a place where  more  number of IPs and poor working class people of unorganized sector are living & to facilitate them for health care .

So far Odisha is concerned , there are about 2.70 lakhs of IPs in the state and more are in the line to be added. Out of the said figure of IPs more than 65% are from tribal dominated area of Sundargarh , Jharsuguda , Keonjhar and Part of Sambalpur district where more than 50% of total population are tribal  of which Rourkela is the nerve centre . Rourkela is also well connected by Rail and Road communication from different parts of the said districts and our state.

After the decision in this regard was announced , we are representing all concerned and  have already requested & submitted a memorandum to establish the said Hospital and Medical college at Rourkela to different Central and State Government authorities earlier. In the mean time Non Resident Odias living in different part of globe had represented memorandum to different Central and State Government authorities.

Unfortunately a decision is taken to open the said institution at Bhubaneswar, the state Head Quarter  where there are about 10 Medical College ad Hospitals are operating  with many other medical establishments ( About 7 Medical Colleges and Hospitals in and aound ) where only 25% of the IPs of ESIC  are living . We learnt that Your Excellency is invited for the foundation stone laid ceremony on 9th of December at Bhubaneswar for the said purpose.

We sincerely condemn the decision of the concerned authority as Whimsical , partisan and  inappropriate contrary to the justification of the said establishment because this is unjustified and unable to full fill the very cause of interest of IPs of ESI Corporation.

Your Excellency is the head of the Welfare  Democratic Country of India. Your intervention is highly solicited in the said matter . You are requested not to attend the foundation laid  ceremony at Bhubaneswar since  the mass public resentment and agitation against the said decision is going on in the western part of Odisha and also for the greater interest of IPs of ESIC.

Thanking you

Best regards

Sincerely
