The Time for Satyagraha is over

Dear Colleague

This is one of the toughest times for our medical profession. We seem to be in a Do or Die situation. It’s time that we all wake up because the countdown as begun.

CWC Agenda for actions

• Non implementation of inter-ministerial committee recommendations so far by the government of India
• Reaction of the DGHS towards IMA in the last meeting of the National Council for Clinical Establishments.
• No action on PNDT Act: Government itself has gone for a special
• and has halted inter-ministerial decisions
• Government not taking seriously considering a central act against violence
• Capping of compensation clause still far from a reality
• Criminalization of medical practice practically in every law
• JIMA not reaching even the office bearers and projecting losses without sanction
• NMC likely to come in November despite all agitations and likely to bring AYUSH as back door entry.
• Exit test likely to be introduced in spite of all representations by IMA
• Most states allowing AYUSH to prescribe modern drugs
• West Bengal Clinical Establishment Act not community friendly
• Karnataka Clinical Establishment Act, if enacted, will be like West Bengal CEA
• DGHS and National Council for CEA trying to allow non MBBS to sign path and micro lab reports?
• No uniform code for doctors and medical establishments
• MP slapping the doctor made the minister of state in Ministry of Skills Development and Entrepreneurship

Opinion

• Continue Satyagraha
• Protest, Protest and Protest ‘IMA Andolan’

I personally feel that the time for Satyagraha is over.
