“Due to an exigency, the Nadda has postponed his visit,” said PGI Spokesperson Manju Wadwalkar. Dr Varinder Garg, OSD to Union Health Minister at PGI, said that due to prevailing situation in the country, the visit was postponed.
“The ministry had given the date of inauguration as October 2. But it has been postponed for now,” he told Chandigarh Newsline. “There is no communication about the new dates.”
The foundation stone of the 500-bed satellite centre was laid a few years ago. In the beginning, the Institute is planing to open at least nine OPDs at the centre including medicine and pediatrics.
PGI Sources told Chandigarh Newsline that the Institute was “prepared” for the inauguration on October 2. “The temporary arrangement has been made for starting the OPD. The administration was planning to send some of its doctors to Sangrur as well,” he said. “We are not aware about the new dates.”
Earlier, Nadda had ordered to start operations at the centre from September 15. Then, the Institute had geared itself to inaugurate the centre on September 18.
