Controversy over Punjab Health Minister’s indecent behavior, Mann accepts Dr Raj Bahadur’s resignation – India Times Hindi News

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has accepted the resignation of Dr Raj Bahadur as the Vice Chancellor of Baba Farid University of Health Sciences in what is seen as a move to extend support to his MLAs.

Government sources said the resignation has been sent to Governor Banwari Lal Purohit for his final approval.

Dr Bahadur had resigned on July 30 after he was allegedly “humiliated” by state Health Minister Chetan Singh Jauramajra during his inspection of the hospital and forced to lie on a dirty mattress in the hospital.

The incident drew the support of a prominent doctor not only with political parties but also with people from all walks of life and condemned the health minister for the incident.

Although the Chief Minister had called Dr Raj Bahadur a day after the incident and expressed his regret, but the doctors were not ready to accept it.

Though opposition parties had unitedly targeted the Mann government over the incident, AAP termed the incident as unfortunate but did not criticize the health minister, indicating that they were extending their support to him.

The acceptance of resignation seems to suggest that the CM also took a stand in favor of his minister.
