THE NEW KGMU V-C is continuing with his mood to change the constellation of the medical varsity.
In the series, V-C Prof Hari Gautam on Friday replaced the Controller of Examination (CoE) and stopped construction work of much-hyped ‘clinical pharmacology unit.’
Before replacing the officials from the examination department, the interview of new ones was formally held and their consent was also taken.
Dr Dipak Kumar, Head of the Department of Ophthalmology replaced CoE Dr MN Siddiqui, of the Department of Anatomy. Dr Siddiqui was made CoE in the month of May, when Prof SK Agrawal took over as interim V-C.
Along with Dr Siddiqui had replaced Dr SK Das in May Dr Manish Bajpai has also been removed from the controller office.
More so, two new posts of assistant CoE have been created at KGMU. Dr Rajiv Garg of the department of pulmonary medicine and Dr Sandip Bhattacharya of physiology department have been made assistant CoEs.
Meanwhile, the construction work of the clinical pharmacology unit was also stopped. The construction agency of the unit UP Jal Nigam officials were asked to immediately stop the work.
Friday’s decision has sent a message among all those faculty members who are holding administrative posts currently. As these changes were done quickly surprised one and all on campus.
Other than those who were interviewed no faculty could come to know about the change until they were announced in the evening.
It may be mentioned that on Thursday, the V-C had made changes in the legal cell and proposals for terminating the services of several lawyers working for the varsity have been made. Even the faculty in charge of the cell was changed.
