India, 02 November 2022: Zee Bihar Jharkhand, the leading news channel of Bihar-Jharkhand, has launched a new series, ‘सिस्टम का रियलिटी चेक’ (System ka Reality Check)’. Backed by the expertise of Zee Media’s news representatives across the state, सिस्टम का रियलिटी चेक’ is a sincere attempt to keep a close eye on the overall operations – health system, governance, ensure factual information reaches the audience and eliminate the social evils from the society. This show is aired at 2 pm every day and has grabbed the attention of the viewers & the concerned authorities, who were compelled to take corrective measures to post the channels’ coverage.
With an aim to address social concerns, Zee Bihar Jharkhand has conducted the first series of reality checks of the health systems by investigating the overall robust operations of the systems, which also includes exposing the reality of individual government hospitals across the Bihar- Jharkhand State. Cleanliness issues, lack of medical facilities, scarcity and timely availability of free medicines, resource crunch of doctors and nurses, disrespectful behavior of the hospital staff, shortage or no rooms available in respective wards, patients put being put on stretchers in the corridors, etc are some of the biggest challenges faced by the health infrastructure across different districts of the Bihar-Jharkhand state. To date, the Zee Bihar Jharkhand team has conducted a surprise check across hospitals, which also include Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH), Nalanda Medical College and Hospital (NMCH), Sardar Hospital, etc.
Zee Bihar Jharkhand’s health system reality check campaign has begun to yield transforming results, bringing to light the sluggishness prevailing in the government system of Bihar. Strict actions and quick decisions are being taken to improve the system by the concerned officials. Tejashwi Yadav, Health Minister of Bihar lauded the campaign of Zee Bihar-Jharkhand and said, “I appreciate the efforts being taken by the Zee Bihar-Jharkhand team, as it has helped to get an in-depth understanding of ground reality and shortcomings and challenges faced by the population in Bihar-Jharkhand. We look forward to strengthening the health infrastructure across different districts. Discussions on beneficial health policies and facilities will also be taken care of.” Additionally, the President of the IMA, Dr. Sahajanand praised the initiative and assured them to address the problems of the state.
Commenting on the continuous success of the campaign, Purushottam Vaishnav, CEO, of Zee Bihar Jharkhand said, “Zee Bihar Jharkhand feels socially responsible to expose the facts and challenges faced by different sections of the economy, thus impacting the well-being of the common man. Besides the health system, we also look to simultaneously discuss and expose the reality of about every section in the upcoming months.”
“Zee Bihar Jharkhand channel is not only hopeful but firmly believes in ensuring the right information is exposed to the vast population of Bihar-Jharkhand state.
