Patiala, September 18

Dr Rajan Singla has been replaced by Dr Avnish Kumar as the Director-Principal of Government Medical College here. The former is said to have been removed for administrative reasons and in the public interest.

The new head of the college took charge today in the presence of his predecessor. Dr HS Rekhi, Medical Superintendent, Government Rajindra Hospital, was also present.

Dr Singla, in a Facebook post, thanked his colleagues for their support during his tenure as the college principal. He wrote, “I might have been unruly and harsh to someone, but it was all for the welfare of the institute, patients and students.” Dr Singla had suspended over 300 students for skipping a Covid-related meeting last year.
