AIIMS threatens 14 doctors with termination

New Delhi: Acting tough, the AIIMS administration issued notices to 14 resident doctors, asking them why their services should not be terminated for participating in a protest which almost disrupted an event attended by two Union Ministers.

The 14 doctors were a part of the protest staged by the Resident Doctors Association (RDA) against the signing of an MoU between AIIMS and National Buildings Construction Corporation Limited (NBCC) to sell 10 per cent of the institutional land for commercial use for building over 3,000 flats for AIIMS staff in Ansari Nagar, West Campus.

The AIIMS management has asked the doctors concerned to submit their replies by 3 pm tomorrow.

“It is observed that inspite of directions by Academic Section vide email dated January 17 to RDA president and advice given to them to refrain from the illegal activities, you have indulged in protest, displayed banners, shouted slogans and attempted to disrupt peace within JL auditorium of AIIMS and tried to interrupt official function in which two senior Union Ministers were invited by AIIMS.

“Your conduct is unbecoming of a resident of AIIMS and in violation of directions of High court of Delhi and amounts to contempt of court. The Director, AIIMS has viewed your protest as an act of indiscipline against AIIMS.

“Hence you are instructed to submit your explanation as to why your services should not be terminated as a senior Resident, as part of disciplinary action for the above said act,” the show cause notice read.
