Resentment brews over termination of Dr Amit
RDA seeks revocation of order within 48 hours

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Mar 19: The termination of Dr Amit Kumar appears to be snowballing into major issue after Resident Doctors Association (RDA) threatened to go on strike if order of his termination was not revoked within two days.
Members of RDA expressing resentment against the administration termed the decision as unfortunate. Justifying the post, they claimed that the post was not meant to instigate or target anyone.
Referring his comment, Dr Amit told Early Times, during press meet, that there was nothing in the post which instigated or targeted anyone. "Being a citizen of the State, I had commented on Minister's facebook page," he said. Pointing out double stand of GMC's Principal, he alleged that few months ago, a senior doctor had made a comment against Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti but no one from administration had taken any action against him, just because he was close aide of a Minister.
"Principal GMC Jammu had served termination letter despite submitting apology letter. Soon after, receiving termination letter, I approached Minister for seeking apology but he also refused to revoke order, "he added.
RDA President Dr Sourabh Katoch said the termination of Dr Amit is unacceptable as the comments of said doctor on Facebook were in no way meant to provoke readers or to target college administration or Government. "Dr. Amit submitted a letter of unconditional apology in Principal office for his comments on facebook, following which a warning should have been issued to Dr. Kumar before issuing termination order" president RDA said adding that Dr Amit was a dedicated, honest and hardworking registrar of this institution.
"If the order was not revoked in next 48 hours, we will be forced to express our resentment including termination of OPD services and after that all emergency services included surgical procedures in main OT, college academic activities shall also be stopped, "he added.
Principal, GMC Jammu Dr Sunanda Raina said "I would prefer to comment on this issue after reading the letter which was sent by doctors". Pertinently, Principal GMC Jammu had terminated Dr Amit Kumar on March 15 for alleged anti -government post on Facebook page of Health Bali Bhagat, following which resentment started brewing among doctors from Jammu as well as Srinagar who came out in his support.
