Patel Hospital is in the news: While earlier Jalandhar Mayor demanded an FIR against them, now the Patel Hospital authorities have sought for an FIR against those who entered hospital premises on August 31 and have urged the medical fraternity to be prepared to resort to all lawful methods in association with the hospital administration necessary for the realisation of this purpose.
Earlier the chemist association sat on a dharna alleging that the hospital is trying to block their way while the hospital authorities have said that the said piece of land belongs to them. The Mayor of Jalandhar Jagdish Raj Raja had demanded an FIR against the hospital authorities for removing the fencing laid by the Municipal Corporation authorities.
Now the authorities at the Patel hospital, Jalandhar want action against those who entered the hospital premises on August 31. In case of non-resolution of this matter by Monday the Indian Medical Association IMA and Nursing Home Association will decide its next course of action.
According to Patel hospital authorities, on 31st August, 2019, a violent mob entered the premises of Patel Hospital on the pretext of violation by Patel Hospital of a municipal road.
The mob destroyed and demolished the gate of the hospital as well as the wall. According to the hospital authorities all of it belongs to them.
The hospital authorities say that they have seen the relevant video footage & evidence brought it to light. “We condemn this act of violence against Patel Hospital. The violence endangered the lives of doctors, medical staff and patients inside the hospital. It is surprising that no action has been taken by the authorities despite a complaint,” the IMA said in its press note.
