Faridkot: Baba Farid medical university vice-chancellor Dr Raj Bahadur submitted his resignation shortly after being ‘humiliated’ by Punjab health minister Chetan Singh Jouramajra.

The latter, during an inspection of the hospital, asked Dr Raj Bahadur to lie on a bed meant for patients after finding the mattresses in poor condition.

Apparently miffed at the ‘humiliatiion, Dr Bahadur, a spine surgeon, submitted his resignation.

Meanwhile, minister Chetan Singh Jouramajra;s ‘disciplinary action’ has not gone down well with the medical fraternity, with many social media users comparing the qualifications of the minister and the doctor.

One of the users remarked that while Jouramajra was class 12 pass, Dr Bahadur, who has studied general orthopaedics with specialisation in spine surgery, has carried out over 11,000 spinal surgeries.

The minister had taken oath of office earlier this month.
