Manjit Singh demands opening of registration & license for medical assistants/pharmacist of J&K, Ladakh

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Sept 15: Seeking intervention of Lt Governor Manoj Sinha, Apni Party Provincial President and Former Minister Manjit Singh today demanded opening of registration and licenses in favour of the pharmacists/medical assistants who have completed their courses before August 5, 2019 because 25000 qualified youth in J&K and Ladakh Union Territories have been worried about their uncertain future.
In a statement to the press, a deputation of pharmacists comprising of Sunil Choudhary, Rajat Kumar, Rahul Chib, and Ankush Kumar called on Provincial President Manjit Singh in Apni Party office at Gandhi Nagar and demanded that the registration and licenses in favour of pharmacists/medical assistants should again be opened.
“25000 youth in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and Union Territory of Ladakh who have completed their courses in medical assistant/pharmacists and now they are not being considered eligible to apply for the license or registration after the implementation of central laws and converting of J&K into a Union Territory,” said Manjit Singh who met the deputation.
The Former Minister said that “Before August 5, 2019, pharmacists were governed by the J&K State Paramedical Council and in its place, Central Act of Pharmacy 1948 is governing the issues and this Central Act, does not cover the course of medical assistant/pharmacist.” This has forced the qualified youth to remain jobless and they are suffering from mental stress after many who have completed the courses have not been considered eligible for registration or licenses in J&K, he added. The Apni Party Provincial President Manjit Singh has appealed to the Lt Governor Manoj Sinha to look into the issue of educated youth and their courses should be accepted for registration and licenses for opening of pharmacy shops and apply in government jobs as pharmacists.
“The Government should come clear on the decision and allow the youth to apply for the government jobs as pharmacists and can get licenses to open pharmacy shops in Jammu and Kashmir,” demanded Manjit Singh.
Manjit Singh was concerned over the unclear decision of the government which has put thousands of educated youth in darkness. “The courses are still being taught for pharmacy in J&K. However, the central law bars these young boys and girls from getting registration or licenses. This discriminatory decision should be reviewed in favour of the youth which has given rise to mental stress and frustration,” he said.
On this occasion, Manjit Singh was accompanied by Apni Party leader Madan Lal Chalotra, Gourav Kapoor and Raqeeq Ahmed Khan.
