Various doctors’ associations have staged a protest by organizing rasta rako, rallies demanding immediate withdrawal of GO 465 issued by the State government giving official recognition to the RMP and PMPs.
The protest programme of staging dharnas, rallies was organized by Indian Medical Association, Government Doctors’ Association, AP Junior Doctors Association. They alleged that giving recognition to the Registered Medical Practioners (RMP) and Private Medical Practitioners (PMP) after giving training is nothing but deceiving the doctors. They alleged that the RMPs are prescribing painkillers and antibiotics indiscriminately. By giving recognition to them, nobody can stop them.
The doctors organized a rally from Guntur Government General Hospital to the District Collector’s office by holding placards. In Kurnool, doctors organized rally from Government medical college to Rajvihar.
They demanded immediate removal of TDP medical wing president and Swatchchandhra Corporation Chairman Dr.CL Venkata Rao immediately for his unwarranted comments on the doctors.
