Indian Medical Association (IMA), the national voluntary organisation of Doctors of Modern Scientific System of Medicine, will organise a pan-India protest across its 1700 branches on November 16, 2016, against the proposed National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill. The ‘IMA Stop NMC Satyagraha’ will be held between 11 am to 1 pm, on the occasion of International Tolerance Day.
Dr SS Agarwal, National President, Dr K K Aggarwal, National President (Elect) & Prof (Dr) A Marthanda Pillai, Immediate Past National President, Indian Medical Association said that over 500 dharnas will be organised across the country on November 16, 2016. The protest in Delhi will take place at Jantar Mantar.
“IMA has been fighting for its six major demands for over two years. The proposed Dharna in 2015 was postponed on the assurance given by the Minister of Health and Family Welfare, JP Nadda, that these demands will be considered and approved within six weeks. It has been over a year, and they remain unresolved. We will be organising a nationwide peaceful protest to demand answers,” Dr Aggarwal.
