Chandigarh: The Advocate General on Thursday produced before the Bench of Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain the order whereby the Punjab Government has withdrawn essentiality certificate issued to Gian Sagar Medical College and Hospital. The essentiality certificate is a mandatory requirement for the establishment of a medical college. It may be mentioned that on the last date, it had been stated that the government would not take over the college. Appearing for the students, counsel Puneet Gupta, Gurminder Singh and RPS Bara pointed out that in the affidavit filed by Dr Varinder Kumar on behalf of the Trust of the college, it was clearly stated that if the essentiality certificate was cancelled, the Trust would not be in a position to revive and run the medical college. The next date of hearing is May 16 when the government will produce the proposal to shift 500 students of the medical college. The fate of the students of the dental, nursing and physiotherapy colleges run by the Gian Sagar management is still hanging in balance. TNS
