KING GEORGE’S Medical University registrar’s move to remove Dr Ramakant from the post of chief medical superintendent has triggered a new controversy.
The matter has now reached the governor’s court, which makes the case even curiouser.

Dr Ramakant was appointed by order of Executive Council in October 2004 while order to remove him from the post comes from the registrar. This became the bone of contention.

“I have no liking for the post. Thrice I have myself written to varsity authorities to get me out of this post. But, the way I have been asked to leave now is incorrect,” says Dr Ramakant, who has sought the chancellor’s intervention in to the matter.

He says since the EC had approved his appointment to the same body, which is the supreme administrative authority of the varsity, only it should ask him to leave the office.

“When there were no controversies attached with me as the CMS why should I leave the post by an office order from the registrar who has no power to make appointment or depose one from such posts,” he said.

Incidentally, this was the last order issued during the term of Prof Mahendra Bhandari. The order was issued on May 11 but was served on Dr Ramakant on May 13, after Prof Bhandari left the campus giving charge to the new V-C Dr SK Agrawal.

The matter has also been referred to the new V-C to decide upon. “I have been appointed by the EC and should be removed by the EC and I have no objection for a compliance against the order from the EC,” Dr Ramakant who also holds the post of head of the department of General Surgery, said.

KGMU already has a medical superintendent Dr Gurmeet Singh for working of Gandhi Memorial and affiliated hospitals. In additional to this, Prof Bhandari has made Dr Ramakant the CMS to look in to the clinical matters from the side of the university and manage affairs of Trauma Centre along with the in charge Dr AA Mahdi.

Dr Ramakant has sent the letters both to the V-C Dr Sk Agrawal and governor office.
