Chandigarh 12th August; The PGIMER, Chandigarh has become a den of corruption and safe haven for corrupt. The Hospital Administration has become casualty at the National Importance Institute under the aegis of highly corrupt officer of PGI.
The corrupt officers are firing shots by keeping the communication and directions even from PMO and Union Health Ministry under the carpet. The PGI Administration has not only made mockery of Swatch Bharat Programme but has put the lives of patients, public and staff in danger besides causing serious threat to environment.
Though, the PMO and DoT had issued directions in May, 2015 to tackle the call drop and poor connectivity of mobiles in hospitals within 3 days but it has fell on deaf ears of highly corrupt officers of PGI. Earlier, the Estate Committee (Commercial) has recommended to allow Idea services and further resolved to start Multi Networking at PGI in its meeting held on 24.1.2015.
The Chief Vigilance Officer of PGI has been acting as ‘caged parrot’ by adopting ‘go slow’ on serious complaints of corruption. The CVO, PGI, who has completed his maximum tenure of 5 years and the name of new CVO has been finalised by CVC, is continuing, which speaks volume and reflects the mala fide and bad intentions on the part of Director, PGI.
Though, the Chief Security Officer, who has been holding the additional charge of Telephone Exchange / Wing , has been divested of his powers after the complaint to CVC / CBI and now it has been handed over to one Deputy Medical Superintendent yet the Medical Superintendent and few other corrupt officers have managed to keep the recommendations of Estate Committee (Commercial) in a cold bag causing untold miseries and hardships to patients, public and staff due to call drop and poor connectivity.
The PGI MTA demands that the Hon’ble Prime Minister or Union Health Minister should sack the Director and Medical Superintendent for their administrative failures on each front and for patronizing corrupt and corruption be it Recruitment, Purchase, Services, Chemists and other Shops, Engineering Projects, etc. , which have been in news for the last 2-3 years.
The patients, public and staff of PGI should be given freedom from the corrupt and corruption on the eve of coming Independence Day.
