GUJRANWALA Oct 5 (TNS): Shocking revelations have surfaced about non-merit recruitments at DHQ Teaching Hospital Gujranwala.

In a letter addressed to Health Secretary, Medical Superintendent (MS) DHQ Hospital, Dr Anwar Aman has levelled serious accusations against Principal Medical College Dr Mohsin Aftab, who allegedly filled up some vacancies in violation of the existing rules and codes of conduct.

Dr Anwar Aman, in his letter, revealed that the Principal made two non-merit recruitments to fill Grade 17 vacancies in Quality Management department at the hospital.

Dr Aftab, he wrote, came to his office with two candidates and instructed him to hire them. When he refused, the Principal took the applications of all the candidates with him and, exceeding his powers, issued orders to hire the two aforementioned candidates.

MS Dr Anwar Aman requested the Health Secretary to review the recruitment for the two said vacancies and carry out appropriate action.
