Hyderabad : Doctors on strike! Massive protest against NMC at Osmania

HYDERABAD: Central Government presents the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill as pro-private college management bill in the parliament, the Telangana Junior Doctors Association organised a massive protest at Osmania Medical College.

Doctors said that the bill surface the way for corruption as it removes all regulations for setting up a medical college and will definitely make medical education in India which leads to highly expensive.

Dr PS Vijayender, chairman, T JUDA said that “This bill is not for common people who ensures to emerge as doctor in future. It is pro-rich and pro-private managements. If the said bill is implemented, the cost of medical education and healthcare will rise astronomically. It is also anti-patient since it promotes unscientific mixing of systems. A medical Bill without the concurrence of the medical profession will be a disaster. So, we appeal to the government of India to abolish this bill.”
