Medicos at receiving end: SCD
Srinagar, Dec 5: Accusing the State government of having a declared a virtual war against the medical fraternity, Society for Consultant Doctors (SCD) has said that such repressive tactics could cripple the health services in the state.
Seeking Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s personal intervention in addressing issues confronting the medical fraternity, a SCD spokesman said the recent episode at Kulgam, where a male and female doctor were arrested and held captive for seven days is highly condemnable and a violation of Supreme Court rulings.
“Such incidents will not only discourage the doctors community but will lead to brain drain and even cripple the otherwise improving peripheral hospitals,” SCD spokesman said.
“Instead of encouraging the doctors, the state government is maltreating and humiliating them. It was because of the hard work of these doctors that the state got top award in primary and secondary health in the Indian state of states rankings,” the spokesman said.
SCD has demanded immediate withdrawal of FIR’s against the said doctors at Kulgam.
