They said the stakeholders had not been taken into confidence by the Health Department in this regard.The medics said there was no need of new experiments in the departments of medical and paramedical institutes as the ultimate affectees of the change would be the poor patients.
Flanked by other offices-bearers of the association, the doctors said the officials concerned in Health Department had expressed reservations over the proposed ordinance. They demanded the governor, chief minister and health minister to repeal the ordinance.To a question, they said the ordinance was introduced by those at the helm of affairs just to favour their blue-eyed and bring the medical fraternity under direct control.The news.
