A doctor who conducted a pre-wedding shoot in the operation theater of Bharamasagar Government Hospital in Chitradurga has been dismissed from service. Government hospitals exist for the health care of people and not for personal work. I cannot tolerate such indiscipline from doctors,” the minister wrote in a tweet.

He added that all contract employees, including doctors and staff performing duties in the health department, should perform their duties as per the government service rules.

“I have already instructed the concerned doctors and all the staff to be careful so that such abuses do not happen in government hospitals. Everyone should focus on performing the duty, knowing that the facilities provided by the government to the government hospitals are for the health care of the common people,” he added.
