NSUI ACTIVISTS today pulled a fast one on the cops and administration when they surreptitiously managed to get an OPD treatment slip at MY Hospital in the name of Shivraj Singh Chouhan, and tried to enter the hospital with an effigy of the Chief Minister to get him treated for Chikungunya – the viral fever that is spreading swiftly in various colonies of the City.
The OPD slip had the Chief Minister’s name, in the place of his father’s name was written Mr Chouhan, his address was given as Shyamla Hills, Bhopal, his age – 54, and his profession as government official. The computerised slip was made at 8.55 am.
The fact that the NSUI activists managed to make a slip left the cops and district administration officials red-faced as they frantically tried to find out how the slip was made, and whether anyone could be penalised for the act or not.
The NSUI had announced that it would take the Chief Minister’s effigy inside the MY Hospital, but that they would also make an OPD slip in his name was not disclosed. The police had tied a rope across the main entrance of the MY Hospital and were waiting for them to turn up. Soon the NSUI activists did turned up and at one point there was talk of taking out two effigies of the Chief Minister, but the police warned them of dire consequences if they attempted to take two effigies of the Chief Minister inside the hospital.
At around 10.30 am, NSUI activists including Vivek Khandelwal, Deepak Chhabra, Arun Hingankar and Deepak Wankhede among others tried to enter the hospital with the effigy. But the policemen pounced on them and within minutes the stuffing of the effigy came out and all activists were arrested.
The activists could not manage to enter the hospital premises. After sending the activists away, the cops, not knowing what to do with the effigy threw it inside the hospital premises over the boundary wall. But, then CSP Irmin Shah came and demanded to know where the effigy was. When the cops told her where the remains of the effigy had been thrown, she made them pick up the effigy and took it away with her.
