Health Minister JP Nadda was to visit the Lady Hardinge Medical College and Hospital in Delhi, but apparently seeing that the doctors were in an agitation mode there, he cancelled his visit.

Doctors of Delhi’s Lady Hardinge Medical College (LHMC) have urged India’s health minister JP Nadda to intervene in the stalled Comprehensive Redevelopment Plan (CRP) of LHMC and associated hospitals.

The CRP includes a building whose work has been in abeyance for over six years. This building was supposed to improve facilities of patient care and medical education in the hospital.

Dr Shivaji Dev Barman, Vice President, RDA, LHMC, said that had this building been constructed in time, the LHMC would have provided patient care at the level of Ram Manohar Lohiya and Safdarjung hospitals.

Dr Vivek Chouksey, President, RDA, LHMC, in a letter to Nadda, has said that the CRP was supposed to change this institution by improving the infrastructure of the medical college as well as the hospital.

“Unfortunately, the structures that were built as parts of CRP, now stand in a dilapidated condition with no development for many years. Because of stalled CRP and its uncertain future, the college is not able to implement many other projects,” explained Dr Chouksey to the minister.

Dr Chouksey urged Nadda to look into the matter of CRP on urgent basis and take necessary steps.

It may be noted the Nadda was to visit LHMC on April 10, 2018. The resident doctors of the college wore black ribbons and held placards before Nadda’s visit.

“Sensing the protest by doctors over CRP, the health minister had to cancel his visit,” said a doctor of LHMC.
