IMA Strike Hits Healthcare Services In Odisha

Bhubaneswar: Healthcare services were badly affected across Odisha
with doctors of the state-run government and private hospitals went on
a nation-wide strike called by Indian Medical Association (IMA)
opposing the National Medical Commission Bill.

Hundreds of medical students staged a demonstration before Raj Bhawan
here to protest against the move for introducing the new Bill.

“The Bill seeks to replace Medical Council of India with a new body
and proposes to allow alternative medicine graduates to practise
allopathy after completion of a bridge course.  We want the Bill to be
amended at the earliest in the larger interest of the medical
profession”, an agitator said.
