New Delhi, July 1: In yet another embarrassment to BJP-PDP coalition Government, Jammu and Kashmir Minister Chaudhary Lal Singh has been caught on camera, touching a woman doctor in appropriate manner.
Reportedly, a photograph of the Minister displaying this misdemeanor has gone viral on the social media.
The incident took place, when BJP leader, who is Minister for Health, had gone to the government hospital in Lakhanpur. Chaudhary Lal Singh had gone there to ensure proper preparedness ahead of the start of Amarnath yatra.
In the hospital, he found that the collar of the doctor was not in proper place and corrected its posture by touching woman inappropriately.
The Minister was accompanied by the Secretary Health and Medical Education Department, Dr Mandeep Bhandari and SP Kathua Nasir Khan.
This is not the first time the minister is creating controversy for behaving indecent manner.
In February this year, Singh was accused by a woman doctor of mental harassment after he rebuked her for not wearing the apron.
However, senior officer who was witness to the whole episode has said that he didn't do anything wrong.
"Minister moved to female doctor asked her... Bitya your collar is not proper and corrected it with his hand. There was no protest by the female doctor," officer said.
In fact, other woman doctor watching the Minister correcting the collar of the doctor, herself took lesson for it and placed her collar in proper place, the officer further said defending the minister.
"There was a lot of public. I do not think he inappropriately touched the woman doctor at a government hospital," he said.
Meanwhile, the opposition has demanded that government should take action against the controversial minister.
