OUTGOING VICE-CHANCELLOR of KGMU Prof Mahendra Bhandari could not restrain himself from adding a word about the allegations of corruption levelled against him while speaking at the Scientific Convention Centre today.

The occasion was the inauguration of RP Shahi Renal Transplant OT Complex and Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav was present on the dais. Prof Bhandari could not control himself from sharing his concern. The CM too pacified him and asked him to wait till the probe was over.

Prof Bhandari told the CM that people who were working should be saved from the slur of allegations. He said that while leaving the campus, he carried back good memories, except for the allegations.

The chief minister in his address said that one should not be depressed with allegations. “People do not even spare me, then why are you worried? Let the law do its work.

Once the charges are cleared, the complainants making biased and false allegations will also be punished,” he said.He said the university had done well in the past years and he was satisfied to have extended financial help to it for development.

The chief minister garlanded Prof Bhandari for his contribution to the field of medical education and health care in the state. “Prof Bhandari has planned to leave the country for a few years but I would suggest to him to come back early and serve the country with more experience and devotion,” the CM said.
