Doctors oppose pandemonium at Parliament
The Hindu, August 14, 2015
Doctors have joined
hands to raise their voice against what ?they call wasteful use
of the Parliament time?, stating that this should not be allowed
The Indian Medical
Association (IMA) urged its 2.5-lakh members to sign a petition
against this. The IMA leadership has signed the ongoing petition
onchange.org, which has received over 15,000 signatures already.
They all unanimously demanded that the full functioning of
Parliament be restored since it works against the overall
healthcare benefit of the Nation.
Speaking about the
issue, IMA national president Dr. A. Marthanda Pillai said:
``Democracy is our country?s biggest asset and we must work
towards maintaining it. As representatives of the medical
fraternity of India, we urge all political parties in India to
put an end to the ongoing protests and let the parliament
function smoothly and in harmony.??
IMA doctors have
noted that these setbacks only hamper our country?s image in the
global eco-system. Instead we must focus on working towards
strengthening the healthcare policies and legislations in our
country to deliver a healthy India.
