Redress our grievances: DAK to CM
Srinagar: The Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) has condemned, what it called, the ‘illegal’ promotions and placements in the Health department.
“The department has failed to devise the recruitment rules for the appointment of BMOs, medical superintendent, CMOs, deputy directors and directors of health and family welfare department. The illegal and undue promotions of blue-eyed persons are taking place more frequently in violations of departmental norms. At no point of time seniority and merit are taken into consideration and only influential persons are being promoted. We made many pleas to the Government for ensuring transparency while appointing directors and other senior level posts, but Government has failed to do so till date. There are many blue- eyed doctors in the department who have been made BMOs , Medical superintendents, CMOs when FIRs stand registered against them for embezzlement of public money and other promoted happen to be junior most with a dies non period in their services,” said a spokesman of the Association in a statement.
The Association has appealed the Chief Minister and the Health Minister for intervention to address the grievances of senior doctors on merit and priority. It has also taken strong note of some recent circulars which have been issued ‘without application of mind’. “These circulars are against the interests of doctors as well as the healthcare delivery system of the State,” he said.
