Noted cardiologist P Venugopal on Thursday said the Supreme Court verdict annulling the law that resulted in his removal as AIIMS Director has thwarted the "game-plan carried out in Parliament".

"I am happy that the Supreme Court has upheld the truth," Venugopal said.

While Venugopal did not talk to the reporters directly, he conveyed his reaction to them through senior resident doctor Anil Sharma.

"The decision has thwarted the game-plan carried out in Parliament," Sharma said quoting Venugopal, who made no direct reference to Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss with whom he had a bitter row.

The Resident Doctors Association of the hospital, which has been backing Venugopal in his tussle with Ramadoss, maintained that he would back in office as soon as possible.
