Three whistleblower doctors wait for justice

with 0 Comment

The wait for justice goes on for three whistleblower doctors whom the Delhi government had transferred to the Centre in July. No reason was cited for relieving the doctors of their duties. All three were involved in exposing corruption in the purchase of medical equipment in Delhi government hospitals. The doctors have moved court while they wait for their next posting.

The state government surrendered Dr Vikas Rampal, Dr Sandeep Miglani and Dr Surender Singh to the Central government without stating reasons for transfer. While the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) in a recent order has mentioned that the state did not have the jurisdiction to transfer Central government employees, the Central government insists that the transfers are not unusual.

Vineet Chaudhury, Joint Secretary, Health Ministry, said: “We do not ask state government to state reasons for surrendering the doctors. We are aware that they have moved court. We will be posting them to other locations since the state has surrendered them.”
