Order to rename Faridabad hospital causes uproar
In what has led to a huge uproar in the entire region, the state government has ordered renaming of the Faridabad civil hospital from Badshah Khan Hospital to Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Hospital.
A letter in this regard was issued by the Director, Health Services, to the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) asking him to do the needful as CM Manohar Lal Khattar had ‘desired’ the name change.
Many opposition leaders and various communities have accused the government of trivialising the sacrifice of a freedom fighter to allegedly promote communal motives…. Various Muslim associations have threatened agitations if the name of the hospital is changed.
