The pastorate committee of Kalvari Church, Church of North India, Diocese of Chandigarh, have showed resentment and disappointment with the management of Christian Medical College and Hospital (CMCH), Ludhiana over benefitting family members.
In a press meet held on Sunday, Bishop Yunas Massey, and pastorate committee secretary Samson Dogar accused CMC chairman Dr Rajinder Gyani, director Dr AG Thomas and two other persons of the management of allotting contract of newly proposed surgical building to the company owned by Gyani's son.
Samson Dogar said, “Building contract for surgical building block was given to a new company in March 2014 for Rs 9 crores. The firm is co-owned by the son of CMC managing committee's chairman. This fact is proved by an inquiry committee formed by the CMCH itself. As per the laws, officials of a charitable society cannot directly or indirectly benefit its members or past members or office bearers of the society.”
Pastorate committee demanded removal of chairman, director and two other persons from their posts.
“Director hid the fact that the company to which contract was given belonged to chairman's son, thus misused his authority and indulged in secretly benefitting the chairman's family. Thus, he should be removed from the office,” demanded Samson Dogar.
Bishop Yunas Massey said, “On September 11, general body meeting of the CMCH will take place and the decision on recommendations and findings of inquiry committee will be taken on that day. But if the director is spared, they will hold a permanent protest outside director office, till he gets removed from the office for all his malpractices in the CMCH.”
He said tender was given to the company co-owned by the chairman's son without even floating tender or inviting bids. Bishop said that a letter regarding the matter was sent to the governing body of the Church of North India (CNI).
CMCH management committee chairman Dr Rajinder Gyani said, “I was not in Ludhiana and will come to CMCH for governing body meeting. But all the allegations are false and baseless.”
