Chandigarh, July 30: Vice-Chancellor of the Baba Farid University of Health Sciences Dr Raj Bahadur broke down when Punjab Pradesh Congress chief Amarinder Raja Warring came to meet him at the regional spinal centre in Mohali on Saturday. Dr Raj Bahadur is one of the top orthopaedic surgeons.
In the viral video, as Raja Warring came to meet Dr Raj Bahadur, he could not hold back his tears and started crying. He was in his surgeon’s clothes.
Late Friday evening, Dr Raj Bahadur sent his resignation to Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann citing humiliation by Punjab Health Minister Chetan Singh Jouramajra during an inspection of Guru Gobind Singh Medical College and Hospital in Faridkot on Friday. The minister asked Dr Raj Bahadur to lie on a dirty patient's bed during the visit.
A video of the minister asking the Vice-Chancellor to lie on the bed has also gone viral on the social media.
The Punjab Health Minister can be heard speaking "rudely" with the Vice-Chancellor over the lack of cleanliness in the medical college.
Meanwhile, after the resignation of Dr Raj Bahadur, his secretary OP Chaudhary, Rajiv Devgan, Principal of Government Medical College, Amritsar, and KD Singh, Medical Superintendent of Guru Nanak Medical College also resigned from their posts.
The incident has triggered anger among the medical fraternity, which has sought an apology from Punjab Health Minister Chetan Singh Jouramajra for his behaviour.
