MFA displeased with Finance department’s decision
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Mar 26: The Medical Faculty Association of the Government Medical Colleges and Government Dental Colleges of Jammu and Srinagar have expressed resentment and dismay over the “attitude of the finance department for summarily disposing off the issue of the cumulative service of the medical faculty without considering the case merits.”
Both faculties in Jammu and Srinagar have threatened to go on two-day mass casual leave to press for their demands.
An Association spokesman said a meeting of MFA was held here in which participants said that nothing concrete was done despite the assurances by the finance minister, Abdul Rahim Rather and minister for medical education, R S Chib.
He said the cumulative service benefits had been selectively extended to B-Grade specialists in the health department, homeopathic doctors, veterinary surgeons and KAS officers, but the medical faculty was deprived of these despite being “more qualified and skilled.”
“In addition to patient care, the medical faculty also teaches and takes extensive research work,” he said.
The MFA Srinagar and MTA Jammu have unanimously decided to pursue the matter. The meeting resolved to follow a phase-wise agitation, he said.
In the first-phase, the faculties of Srinagar as well as Jammu will go on mass casual leave, he said. However, the spokesman said the emergency services would function.
“If government fails to address the issue, we will launch a state-wide agitation which would include the suspension of teaching work in both medical college and dental colleges of Srinagar and Jammu.”
They have also appealed the chief minister, Omar Abdullah to intervene in the matter.
