PROTEST PROTEST PROTEST
The Presidents and Secretaries
All Local Branches of IMA
Dear Sir/ Ma’am,
The medical profession is going through extremely
turbulent times with the Govt. seemingly hell bent on snatching the
autonomy of the medical profession.
1. Introduction of National Council for Human Resources in
Health (NCHRH) Bill-2011with an aim to create a superarching body over
Medical Council of India and Paramedical Councils,
2. Implementation of Clinical Establishment (Regn.and
Regulation) Act &
3. Dissolution of Medical Council of India & 3rd
consecutive term for its autocratically appointed Board of Governors are
just the tip of the iceberg.
The Central Working Committee of IMA discussed the matters
with great concern at its 207th meeting at Mumbai, Mah. on April 22, 2012
and it was decided as follows:-
1. A Protest Dharna of
leaders of IMA will be organized at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on 18th
2. A complete Medical Strike along with a Protest
Rally/Dharna in front of the offices of the local authorities related to
Health department be organized in all State/ Local Branches of IMA on Monday,
the 25th June, 2012.
3. All State and Local Branches of IMA will submit a
letter/ emorandum to the political leader / concerned Health Department
regarding the above grave issues of concern for the medical profession.
You are requested to kindly:-
1. Sensitize all your members on the gravity of the
situation and arrange to organize a complete one-day token protest /
Medical Strike in your area on Monday, June 25th, 2012, invite Local
Political Leaders of your area, organize press conferences and circulate
hand bills etc on the above said issues &
2. Submit a letter/memorandum to the Chief Minister/
Health Minister/ Collector/ MP/ MLA/ Political Leaders/ Health officials of
your State/ Branch apprising them about IMA’s viewpoints on all the above
issues. The draft matter for Memorandum and IMA’s view points on the above
issues are available on this webpage
You will kindly agree that if we surrender to assaults on
our profession today, the Govt. will come up with many more suppressive
moves to demean and harass the medical profession.
If we don’t act now with our full might to dispel these
moves of the Government, our future generations will never excuse us for
their predicaments due to our undoings today.
Thanking you and with regards.
P.S.: Please send reports, photographs, press clippings
etc. of your protest to IMA Hqrs. for our records and necessary action.
