The Allahabad High Court Thursday directed the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) to file an affidavit with regard to a PIL in which it has been alleged that adequate and proper medical services were not being provided in the state-run Motilal Nehru Medical College (MNMC) and hospital attached to it because many of its doctors were not adhering to the rules and were involved in private practice. Also, it was alleged that quality doctors were not being appointed in the hospital.
Passing the order Justices Sudhir Agarwal and Suneet Kumar also allowed the impleadment of the UPPSC as a party in the petition. The PIL has been filed by Ravi Singh, an advocate, through his counsel Komal Mehrotra. The matter will come up for further hearing on June 30.
Mehrotra said: “Medical college authorities had submitted that the UPPSC conducts the examinations and sends eligibility list to the government on the basis of which doctors, professors, lecturers are appointed. Hence, the UPPSC has come into the picture.”
