Indian Medical Association, Patiala has condemned yesterday’s incident at Faridkot hospital in which Punjab health minister Chetan Singh Jauramajra humiliated Baba Farid University of Health Sciences vice chancellor Dr Raj Bhadaur. The association wrote a letter to the chief minister of Punjab Bhagwant Mann and demanded health minister expulsion from the state cabinet.
“We expect good governance and not mere cheap politic stunts”; IMA Patiala demanded replacement of HM. A delegation of IMA Patiala handed over their demands to MLA Patiala (Urban) Ajitpal Singh Kohli and MLA Patiala (Rural) Dr Balbir Singh and urged them to forward the same to the chief minister Bhagwant Mann.
In the letter to the CM, IMA wrote “We, IMA PATIALA, are all disheartened to see how a power is abused in our state and that too with a doctor of very good professional knowledge and seated at a higher rank in the matter of medical education. The incidence is what the MLA ,Chetan Singh Jaurmajra, and now Health Minister to date has done a humiliating act against the Vice Chancellor of Baba Farid University, Dr Raj Bahadur. We as a whole cadre in all medical fields strongly condemn this act of high handedness. We expect that new minister and government looks into solving the issues of health sector but rather ministers are stooping to the act of this low level. These acts demoralises the medical and paramedical persons working in all aspects. The resentment is high state wise which would lead to increase in confrontation if no intervention is done at your level. We expect good governance and not mere cheap politic stunts. So it is requested to replace this Health Minster to a better governance minister and bridge the gap between the professionals and government. It’s an old saying “Don’t let someone’s irresponsibility becomes your responsibility”
Meanwhile, Indian Medical Association strongly condemns the derogatory action by the Punjab Health Minister who humiliated Dr. Raj Bahadur,Vice Chancellor of Baba Farid University of Health Sciences on 29th July 2022. It is not only humiliation for the respected Vice Chancellor Dr Raj Bahadur, but entire Medical Fraternity across India has been insulted.
IMA Demands immediate unconditional apology and resignation from the Health Minister of Punjab for his misbehavior. IMA appeals to Chief Minister of Punjab to immediately intervene and take necessary action against the Minister immediately.
