Kurukshetra (Haryana): You have seen Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt’s ‘Munna Bhai MBBS’ wherein a young man passes himself off as the protagonist during a pre-medical entrance examination. But a private hospital in Haryana’s Kurukshetra has gone a step further allegedly admitting fake patients to show bed strength ahead of its mandatory inspection by the Medical Council of India (MCI).

Adesh Hospital in Kurukshetra allegedly paid villagers to pose as patients on October 3 in order to meet the MCI guidelines that state that a hospital seeking to admit 100 MBBS students must have 600 beds with at least 70 percent patient occupancy.

A person, an alleged employee of the hospital, can be heard in an audio clip offering money to villagers for posing as patients. A probe has been ordered by the state government in this regard.

JD Singh, a former village head, alleged that he had got a phone call from their employee who offered to give Rs 200 to each villager who would pose as a patient before the inspection team from the state health department.

“Sir, we need people from your village…tomorrow there is (an) inspection at our college. The health minister is coming. We want to take these people with us. We will admit them as patients. They just have to pose as patients. We will arrange free food and pay Rs. 200 per person,” the alleged employee is heard telling Singh.

The hospital, however, denied that the alleged person in the audio clip was an employee.

  • At a time of tepid job growth and continuing income disparities, the major challenge is to make the youth of the country entrepreneurial and not job seekers, Vice President  Venkaiah Naidu said on Thursday.

“Disparities continue to remain in India and so there is a need for inclusive growth… there is the need to take care of the suppressed, oppressed and depressed,” Venkaiah Naidu said at the Bharatiya Yuva Shakti Trust’s (BYST) silver jubilee celebrations here with Britain’s Prince Charles as the chief guest.

“The challenge for us is to make the youth entrepreneurial, and not become job seekers,” Venkaiah Naidu said pointing to the NDA government’s various initiatives to encourage youth enterprises like Startup India, Standup India and the Mudra financing scheme for underprivileged sections.

Modelled on Prince Charles’ Trust for business startups, BYST, founded by Lakshmi Venkatesan, daughter of former President R. Venkatraman, is engaged in building rural entrepreneurship — “grampreneurs” — as also enterprise among under-privileged sections, which includes business mentoring. The current BYST chairman is Bajaj Group chief, Rahul Bajaj.

“Without mentoring, it would be very difficult to set up startups, with all the business, marketing and other vital issues involved in the first two-three years,” Prince Charles said in his address at the International Mentoring Summit organized by BYST to mark its 25 years.

“What amazes me are the sheer number of jobs these young entrepreneurs had created. The aim of such a project should be to create a virtual cycle of creating entrepreneurs who can then invest in the future of business,” Charles said referring to his trust.

BYST was officially launched in 1992 by Prince Charles and expanded its operations to six major regions of India.

Out of these six regions, four — Delhi, Chennai, Pune and Hyderabad — run the urban programme while two regions — Haryana and Maharashtra — run the rural programme.(IANS)
