2 min read

Mysuru: Office-bearers of Indian Medical Association (IMA), Mysuru district wing on Friday met Deputy Commissioner Dr Bagadi Gautham and submitted a memorandum addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to provide a fearless ecosystem to medicos.

To mark national protest day the members of IMA Mysuru met DC and submitted the memorandum.

The demands include implementation of The Health Services Personnel and Clinical Establishments (Prohibition of Violence and Damage to Property) Bill, 2019, which seeks to punish people who assault on-duty doctors and other healthcare professionals by imposing a jail term of up to 10 years – which, apparently, was dismissed by the Home Ministry during an inter-ministerial consultation over the draft law.

It is ought to be promulgated immediately along with the incorporation of provisions from the IPC/CrPC and with stipulations for a fixed time schedule for speedy conclusion of trials.

All those involved in such heinous crimes ought to be punished so as to also create an effective deterrent for others antisocial elements who may indulge in attacking any Health care professionals.

The doctors who have lost their lives in the war against the COVID 19 pandemic ought to be recognised as COVID MARTYRS with due acknowledgment of their sacrifice. Their families ought to be duly supported by the Government.

We thank for the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana scheme under which insurance benefits are being extended to such families, however, we wish to bring to your kind notice that due to various obstacles in the procedural implementation of the Scheme, out of 754 doctors who had lost their lives in the first wave, families of only 168 doctors have been able to apply under this Scheme.

IMA requests to create an effective mechanism for identifying and verifying all these victims through the Central Bureau of Health Intelligence (CBHI) and also ensure that the support shall be given to all the said families as solatium at their door steps.

IMA believes that vaccination is the only weapon to promote and empower our country to get over the pandemic and to protect our vulnerable population.

It is gratifying to note that only .06% of people who have received both the doses of vaccine got minimal infection by a coronavirus, and very rarely did vaccinate people.

IMA Mysuru Chapter President Dr Anandravi, Dr Prassana Shankar, Dr Rajgopal Dr Sujatha Rao and IMA Secretary Dr Chandra Bhan Singh were present.
