The faculty association of Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research has sent an SOS to Union Health Minister J P Nadda complaining that the hospital administration is not working to the resolve the pending issues of the faculty, despite instructions from the ministry.

A senior faculty member said on Friday that a letter was recently sent to the Union health minister informing him about the delay in maintenance of houses. “The money has been sanctioned by the Standing Finance Committee for maintenance of houses of the faculty. Nothing has been done yet by the PGI administration in that matter. It should have been started earlier,” said the member.

In the letter, sources said, the PGI faculty association has mentioned that several reminders were given to the hospital administration in this regard, but nothing has been done by them. “We have requested the heath minister to kindly issue instructions to the PGI to start the work for the houses immediately,” the faculty member said.

Dr T D Yadav from the PGI faculty association confirmed that a letter has been sent to the Union health minister. “We have informed the health minister that the work for maintenance of the faculty houses has not been started,” he said, adding that administration was not taking immediate steps to resolve the pending issues of the faculty.

Last year in October, the PGI faculty association had launched a protest against the engineering department of the hospital for not resolving their pending
demand.
