Osmania Hospital, one of the country's oldest hospitals and a building that symbolizes the Nizami culture and one of their most treasured architectures at the start of the 20th Century, is now deteriorating day by day. The currently closed facility, which H.E.H. Sir Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan Bahadur Nizam Vll built as a medical facility that provided one of the finest treatments and medicines. The cost of all this plus the treatment was paid for by the Royal Treasury.
The past decade has seen the interior of the hospital look nothing like a heritage hospital. Things like leakage and water issues get worse during rains. The grandson of the seventh and last Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan, Najaf Ali Khan, has written to Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao to consider the deteriorating condition of the famous hospital and fix it completely. The grandson, in his letter, has clearly stated that he does not welcome the changing of the hospital's name, nor does it support the demolition of the building.
During his last visit to the hospital in 2018, Najaf Ali Khan noticed the pathetic condition of the hospital and got some minor fixes done. However, the latter had to write to the Chief Minister in February 2019 as minor fixes by the government were not doing the trick for the hospital. In 2015, Najaf Ali Khan invited the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) to look at the hospital. Their report showed that a thorough renovation of the building could see it serve millions of underprivileged for a century and even longer.
Najaf Ali Khan also highlighted that existential issues of O.G.H. that were raised after AIMIM Chief and Member of Parliament Asaduddin Owaisi made statements about asking the government to demolish the current building and construct a new building on the same premises. Netizens took to Twitter and linked the video footage of the AIMIM chief making the above statements with another footage of his brother Akbaruddin Owaisi (Chandrayangutta, M.L.A.) addressing the state assembly to restore the grandeur of the medical facility. Osmania General Hospital is closed since July 2020 due to water flooding and mediocre conditions to provide treatment since July 2020.
