Doctors’ forum thanks CM

MADURAI: The Tamil Nadu Government Doctors’ Association (TNGDA) has thanked the Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi for enacting the ‘Hospital Protection Law’ in the Assembly.
In a resolution passed at its State executive committee meeting here on Sunday, the TNGDA also thanked Health Minister M. R. K. Panneerselvam and the Health Secretary for their role in formulating the legislation.
The meeting was presided over by Kanagasabapathy, State president. Executive committee members attended the meeting.
The TNGDA resolved to donate a day’s salary of doctors to the ‘Chief Minister’s Sri Lanka Tamils Relief Fund.’
The total contribution of 12,000 members would exceed Rs. 1 crore, said K. Senthil, State secretary of the association.
Stating that steps would be taken to claim genuine pay scales and promotions for government doctors, the committee said that admission to M. Sc. Courses started by the Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical University should be reserved exclusively for Government doctors from the next academic year.
The association said that M. Sc. (non-clinical) courses should not be started in any government college.
It also put forth a demand for starting post-graduate courses in colleges where there was no PG course and increase the number of seats where courses were available.
Boycott of classes
The TNGDA said that if these demands were not met by November 30, it would call for a token boycott of classes and academic activities on December 1 throughout the State. This would be followed by an indefinite boycott from December 8.
