Medical Superintendent of COVID facility calls sudden transfer to Bhawan Mahavir Hospital 'arbitrary', moves letter to L-G
Delhi: Controversy erupted after the Medical Superintendent (MS) of Deep Chandra Bandhu hospital was arbitrarily transferred from his post amidst the pandemic.
As per a recent media report in TNIE, in his letter, the doctor highlighted that "The arbitrariness is born by the fact that it is a single order which reflects that it is not a routine transfer posting. This has been done despite there being no complaint against me and it appears to be a punishment for my good work, which has had a demoralizing effect. Such action breaks the morale of an honest officer and is against the spirit of the message of the Prime Minister regarding corona warriors. When many of my contemporaries had opted to move out, I chose to serve humanity at the age of 61 and with severe diabetes."
"As centralized air conditioning was unconducive in COVID hospitals, I ensured that each ward was provided air conditioning through the installation of split ACs on a war footing. The hospital has the lowest mortality rate. Despite being a 200-bed hospital, it has 15 ICU ventilators out of which eight were procured during the pandemic," he added.
A copy of the letter has been also sent to Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan and Delhi Health Minister, Satyendar Jain.

I stand against the extremely wrong decision taken against MS Dr. Vikas Rampal. Instead of thanking and praising him the negligence shown towards him is extremely disgraceful. We must all appreciate his brilliant managing skills.
@ArvindKejriwal @Ch_AnilKumarINC@drharshvardhan why corona warrior Dr Vikas Rampal has been demoted and transferred who was doing remarkable job in COVID19 hospital Deep Chand Bandhu as MS. This is the gift to a doctor by administration and government. Wow we should clap😠😠— Dr Sudhanshu Singh (@DrSudhanshuSin3) August 7, 2020
