IJT activists demand revival of PMDC rules
Peshawar: Activists of Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT) of Khyber Medical College Friday staged a protest demonstration, demanding the government to revive Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) Rules for medical institutions in the province.

Led by their college president Hafiz Jamiullah, the protesting students gathered outside the Peshawar Press Club and chanted slogans against Khyber Medical University (KMU) and the new HEC rules implemented at the medical colleges. They were also holding placards inscribed with slogans highlighting their demands.

The demonstrators were of the view that before the establishment of KMU, medical and dental colleges in the province were run under Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC). Now that the university has been established under the Model University Ordinance, under which new criteria for promotion of teachers has been introduced, the senior faculty members of the KMC are joining other institutions for offering better packages.

They said as many as 20 senior faculty members had so far left the institution and others were about to leave. It is a matter of serious concern for both the teachers and students of the province's major and popular medical institution. They demanded of the government to revive the PMDC rules, instead of the newly implemented HEC ones, and save the college from being de-recognised. The News
