Kavinder vows to remove discrimination with homeopathic doctors

Jammu,October 25 (Scoop News)-A delegation of unemployed homeopathic doctors on Monday called on senior BJP and former Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta and highlighted various issues which the fraternity was confronting for over one decade.

The delegation rued that the ordeal of homeopathic doctors is so pathetic that they are reeling under colossal stress with nowhere to go for panacea. The members of the delegation said that since last over 10 years J&K no vacancies have been created for the graduates of homeopathic medicine as the government schemes like National Ayush Mission, Ayushman Bharat and National Health Mission employ only Unani and Ayurvedic doctors in the UT despite frequent appeals and the representations. All the doors for giving employment to homoeopathic graduates have been closed resulting into utter frustration among the homeopathic doctors’ fraternity”, they said and added, “Homeopathic system of medicine has no representation in planning commission in department of ISM&H in UT of J&K thus having no provision to get recruited which is nothing but prejudice of highest order”.

The delegation asserted that homoeopathic post graduates and graduates are crossing age bar thus leading to psychological disorders among many. “ The government’s indifference with this segment of medical professional is so much so that on one side both Unani and Ayurvedic graduates have been fully absorbed in government service but in case of this field even the post graduates are being denied the jobs”, they said and demanded justice. The delegation demanded that the jobless medicos in the field should be appointed as CHOs in health and wellness centres in J&K on the pattern of other states/ UTs, appointment of an Assistant Director from the fraternity for planning commission, the privilege which presently is only enjoyed by Unani and Ayurvedic medicos in the department of ISM&H in UT of J&K, extension of bridge course to homoeopathic doctors as Unani and Ayurvadic fraternities have been completely employed through this scheme in J&K, creation of homoeopathic medical officers’ posts for SDHs or PHCs as no posts have been created in the last 10 years and there should be an exclusive scheme for absorbing the homeopathic doctors in government service.

After giving a patient hearing to the plight of aforesaid doctors, Kavinder assured that he will take up the matter with the concerned quarters and will ensure that discrimination with the homeopathic doctors should be removed at the earliest.

The delegation comprised of Dr Abdul Wahab, Dr Mohd Usman, Dr Jan Sher Khan, Dr Muzaffar Iqbal, Dr Mohd Arfaz, Dr Farrha Khan, Dr Sania Khalil, Dr Irm Mirza, Dr Sadaf, Dr Imran and Dr Halema.
