I have taken over as a President of IMA GSB, Gujarat State with effect from 27.10.2018, my branch members are very happy to know this fact. Chance for the President post is given to smallest Union Territory of Daman and Diu which itself show positive attitude for doing development work for medical profession and the society.
We promise to take ahead all the issues of the medical fraternity and the society further and fight out strongly for getting positive results. Friends, you know that the medical profession as whole facing assault on doctors and violence in the hospital which is increasing day by day has to be dealt unitedly with strong motivations.
It has been ascertained that the Government has appointed an Board Of Governors of five Govt. doctors since the term of MCI is nearing completion. It’s nearly same as previous oversight committee. There is no bureaucrats in it.
Government has not promulgated the NMC Bill as ordinance. This is certainly another achievement for the stiff resistance put up by IMA in its struggle against NMC. IMA has stalled the same by mobilising the fraternity, public opinion and MPs in the past two Parliament sessions.
We will strategies to continue the resistance during the winter session as well. IMA shall remain alert and stand as a rock in defending the profession.
IMA Action Committee in an emergency session in Mumbai condemned the supersession of MCI.
This action of the Government at a juncture when the election to MCI has been announced is unwarranted and malafide The composition of the BOG itself is unacceptable. Directors of major National institutions, would
scarcely find time to administer more than 450 medical colleges and their PG, UG courses. Moreover there is no representation to women and Registered Medical Practitioners.
IMA is convinced that supersession of MCI is only a smoke screen and ploy to prepare the ground for NMC and sabotage the democratic process of MCI. Why the Government was in a hurry to scuttle a democratic process needs an answer.
IMA’s concerns remain. Bringing MCI directly under the government control seems to be to plan to implementation of Bridge Courses, crosspathy and registration of non medical persons. IMA demands that the
BOG should refrain from taking any major policy decisions or amendments changing the character of the IMC Act. IMA also demands that the election process in progress in MCI should be allowed to continue.
IMA will continue its resistance to NMC Bill. Any intentions of the NMC Bill implemented through the appointed BOG will be fought with determination.
220th Central Working Committee meeting held on 17th & 18th Nov. at Indore M.P. & in this meeting it was unanimously resolved that IMA will continue its struggle against the Undemocratic, Draconian, Anti student, Anti Federal, Anti poor NMC bill with the same vigour. An action plan to tackle it in the upcoming winter session of parliament starting on 11th December will be decided in the coming Action Committee meeting. IMA has already
voiced its strong protect & grave concern over the undemocratic subversion of autonomous functioning of MCI and demanded its immediate restoration.
Friends, required your whole heartedly support to deal with all the problems faced by the medical professions.
