GMCH bars docs from holding camps for border firing victims

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 25: The double face of the BJP as well as the incumbent principal of the Government Medical College and Hospital Jammu has come to fore after volunteer doctors were barred from holding medical camps for the victims of border firing.
As per a circular (GMC/18/PS/Circular/330) issued by GMC Principal, no faculty member/consultant of the GMC and its associated hospitals shall hold any medical/ diagnostic camp without prior permission/approval of the administrative department.
"This circular came into force at a time when the people of border areas of Jammu, Kathua and Samba districts are in deep trouble due to continuous shelling and firing by Pakistani's Rangers. It speaks volumes about the BJP ministers' concern about affected people," sources said.
They said that when the public is in dire need of volunteer services, GMC&H doctors were restricted from rendering free and volunteer services through camps. The reasons for imposing restrictions and regulating social services by the BJP minister on GMC Jammu doctors is not understood.
Sources added that the timing of the order which is applied only on GMC Jammu's faculty has shocked the volunteers who work selflessly for the public after their duty hours.
When the restrictions were applied at one institute only, many questions will be asked and wisdom of those in power and especially the BJP in particular, who appear insensitive to the peoples need in particular and has proved it through its role during various recent agitations in recent past.
"With current border migration there is urgent need of medical volunteers who render selfless services provide some solace to the migrant, but such orders of restriction of even social services when the state's resources itself are meager and insufficient proves their insensitivity towards the people they claim to represent. The social service will be lost as whenever there is urgent need of the volunteer by society in any kind of distress a volunteer cannot waste his time in seeking administrative approval," said sources.
Sources divulged that this order was issued to curtail social activities of some doctors in particular who render free services through camps and are very popular with the public.
Criticizing the GMC circular, BJP State President Ravinder Raina said that the volunteers should be appreciated for doing social services by organizing medical camps for people of rural areas and especially border firing affected people.
He said that all those doctors who used to do social services as part of medical camps in various places especially LoC, should be appreciated and also must be rewarded.
