State President and Hon. Secretary's Message

ima-president-secretary

Dear Members
Congratulations  for  the  intermediate  success  on  our  struggle  against NMC.
We thank each one of you for your active contribution in the jouney so far. With  the  passing  of  the  Budget  session  of  the  Parliament  without passage of NMC bill the medical fraternity and IMA can rightfully devour
this moment of peace in its war against NMC.
True, NMC is perched precariously. Yet all of us deserve this reprieve. We know we have to regroup and fight. It has been no mean achievement to checkmate a powerful Government in this fight for survival. We have lived through tense moments to fight another day.
In  the    meantime  Parliamentary  Standing  Committee  had  held  its sessions  and  IMA  deposited  before  the  Parliamentary  Standing committee. All the 32 members of Parliamentary Standing Committee were again sensitised in an intensified lobbying. Parliamentary Standing Committee submitted its report  on 20.03.2018. IMA studied it in detail and responded clause by clause. While separate Licentiate exam had been  done  away  with  the  Parliamentary  Standing  Committee  had retained  several  of  the  clauses  which  were  anti  federal,  non
representative  and  anti  democratic  in  nature.  The  Bridge  course  to AYUSH had been dropped but the floodgates were opened to the states.
The percentage of fee regulated private medical seats went up slightly to 50%.  IMA  rejected  the  cosmetic  report  terming  it  cure  worse  than malody.
The epitome of action was the Doctors’ Maha Panchayat on 25.03.2018 in IG indoor stadium ,  New Delhi.

In  the  run  upto  the  Maha  Panchayat  medical  students  from  all  the medical colleges    of  the  Gujarat  &  country met  in  Chatra  Sansad,  a Parliament of students. Similarly IMA had convened all the specialities
associations and the service organisation on the penultimate Sunday in an extended FOMA meeting.
Doctors Maha Panchayat rejected NMC and the Parliamentary standing Committee report. It mandated the National President to closely follow the events in the Parliament   and calibrate the response. Nation wide strike call mandate was given to the National President. IMA coordinated the resident doctors, medical students, IMA members
&  held demonstration  across the Gujarat on 02.04.2018 to sustain the pressure and momentum.
The Bill had been listed on everyday of the last week in Budget session.
For the present the Bill is the property of the House even though it has been adjourned sine die. This has given us three months to plan our strategy and continue the struggle.
The Union Health Minister Shri J P Naddaji held a 2½  hours marathon discussion with IMA with his complete team of officials on 02.04.2018.
He  has  ordered  implementation  of  interministerial  committee recommendations on PC PNDT and CEA within a time frame. He has promised  appropriate  action    on  Central  Hospital  Protection  Bill  and capping of  compensation in CPA.
This three month long struggle has empowered and   galvanised IMA. A rejuvenated confident medical profession looks forward to its rightful dignified space in deciding the health policies of the nation. Nearly 950 new life members of Gujarat have been added in last one month.
Medical students and resident doctors are now closely associated with IMA  in  a  big  way  and  look  forward  to  IMA  as  their  saviour.  This investment now will reap benefits to IMA in long term. In the war of nerves, IMA has not compromised an inch though abolition of Licentiate exam and Bridge course   to AYUSH and Anti Quackery
penal provision are legitimate victories  of huge dimension.

Let  us  continue  and    consolidate  our  unity  and  plan  wisely  the strategy for next three months so as to achieve final victory. Dr. Bhupendra Shah had visited IMA Kadi branch and honoured as chief guest in installation program. He had also visited IMA Rajkot branch and honoured as chief guest in installation program. IMA GSB arranged  public  awareness  program  about  organ  donation  with health awareness program organised by IMA Idar branch was great success and appreciated by society and other organisations.
On  14th  April  and  15th  April  IMA  GSB  hosted  219th  CWC  at Ahmedabad. Our WMA Imm. Past President and our beloved leader Dr. Ketanbhai Desai and Past National President Dr. Jitubhai Patel guided  and  with  hard  and  dedicated  work  by  Dr.  Mahendrabhai Desai, Dr. Yogendrabhai Modi, Dr. Bipinbhai Patel, Dr. Kirtibhai Patel,
Dr. Devendrabhai Patel,   Dr. Jitendra N. Patel, Dr. Shailendrabhai Vora, Dr. Navneetbhai Patel and , Dr. Kiritbhai C. Gadhavi. We also thankful to KD Hospital for arranging meeting on 14th April.
Everybody enjoyed meeting and participated tills end and first time residents doctors and students involved in CWC meeting and it’s was a great success. Dr Adit Ketan Desai had done extremely good and hard work to make junior doctors and students meet to successful .
