Press Trust of India  |  Raipur 

A controversy has erupted over alleged deployment of a medical team at the venue of the marriage of the son of Home Minister Ramsewak Paikra here.

The image of the order copy, purportedly issued by the office of the Chief Medical and Health Officer (CMHO), Raipur district, on June 15, has gone viral on


Raising the issue, the said such a deployment is unethical.

"How doctors and medical staff can be deployed during marriage of the home minister's son? It's wrong and unethical," state unit president Bhupesh Baghel tweeted today along with the image of the order's copy.

It is the violation of the code of conduct for employees and a disciplinary action should be taken against the CMHO for issuing such an order, the said in a statement.

The purported order states that as per the information provided by the special secretary to the minister, the latter's son Lavkesh Paikra's marriage function is to be held at a city hotel on June 18.

It further states that a five-member medical team will remain deployed at the marriage and reception venue from8 pmtill completion of the ceremony, for emergency services.

When contacted, Raipur CMHO Dr SK Shandilya denied that the medical team was deployed at the wedding.

"The order was issued for the constitution of a medical team and not for its deployment at the venue of the wedding function," the CMHO told PTI.

Keeping in view the marriage of the minister's son, a medical team was formed to handle any medical emergency if need be, he clarified.

"There is no question of deploying the medical team at the wedding venue," he added.

Repeated attempts to contact Ramsewak Paikra proved futile as he was busy in the marriage.
