Our Correspondent

Ludhiana, December 17
The management of Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) has assured the hospital union about reconsidering the termination orders of Mr S.S. Saini, Law Officer, by tomorrow.

Despite two rounds of meetings today at the hospital, the DMCH management and the union failed to find a solution. Mr Chander Mohan Kalia, president of the DMCH Union, said the management had assured the employees that it would reconsider the termination orders of the Law Officer, whose contract will expire on December 31.

“We had two rounds of meetings today which was attended by union leaders and members of the management, including Mr Amrit Nagpal, Mr Satish Sanwalka, Mr T.S.Kanwar, Mr Narinder Singh, Mr Rajeev Varma, Dr Sandeep Puri and Dr Rajoo Singh Chhina. The next meeting will be held tomorrow at 11a.m. and we are hopeful that the matter will be sorted out amicably”, said Mr Kalia.

Meanwhile, the management said in a press note that “regarding the issue of Mr S.S. Saini, discussions are proceeding in a very cordial and positive direction and the hospital authorities have agreed to meet again tomorrow to discuss the matter further”.

It may be recalled that the union leaders had threatened to resort to a peaceful agitation if the termination orders of the Law Officer were not reconsidered by the management. The management, on the other hand, was adamant on its stand.
