Docs can’t afflict patients obstructing service: DPM Yadav
Bharatpur, April 7: Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health and Population, Upendra Yadav, has said doctors are not allowed to afflict patients in any pretext. The Federal Civil Service Act has already addressed the doctors’ demands, he underscored while talking to media persons at Bharatpur airport here today.
“If the doctors have anything important, the government takes positively. But in the name of posing demands, they must not mount trouble on patients,” DPM Yadav reiterated, adding that it was a mere false impression that the integration of government employees obstruct doctors’ career.
The DPM further said everyone’s career ladder is ensured; the government does not obstruct anyone here. If obstructed, how the medical system could function, he wondered. He urged the agitating doctors to quit agitation and attend the patients immediately.
Moreover, the DPM was of the view that doctors could internalize the importance of service rather than their demands.
On a different note relating to Chitwan Medical College, he said if any medical college was found taking more fee than the government’s standard, an investigation would be launched on it and the culprits booked accordingly. He also expressed commitment that he would talk on it to the administration of Chitwan Medical College as well.
