- HT Correspond­ent letterschd@hindustant­imes.com

ROHTAK: Less than two weeks after Haryana health minister Anil Vij raised questions over the architectu­re of the trauma centre of the PGIMS Rohtak, a committee has been set up to look into the flaws in the newly-constructe­d building.

An official spokesman said that a four-member committee comprising director, PGIMS, Rohtak, superinten­ding engineer, public works (building and roads) department (PWD), executive engineer (electrical), PWD, and a representa­tive of chief architect, had been formed by the health department to look into the engineerin­g problems of the trauma centre.

The committee will submit its detailed report, including the corrective measures and financial implicatio­ns, within two weeks.

Notably, the heath minister, during his surprise visits on July 8 and 9, found flaws in the constructi­on of the building, saying that patients had to travel quite a distance to go to the toilets.
