YDA announced a province-wide protest against the passage of the PMC bill | Instant News


KARACHI – The Sindh Young Doctors Association (YDA) on Saturday strongly rejected the Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) bill that was recently passed and announced a province-wide protest from 05 October 2020 against the bill.

This view was expressed by the Chairman, YDA, Sindh, Dr Omer Sultan in a press conference held at the Karachi Press Club here. The President, YDA, Sindh, Dr Yaseen Umrani, Secretary General Dr. Mehboob Noonari, Vice President Dr. Waris Jakhrani and others were also present on this occasion.

Dr Omer Sultan said passing the bill would worsen medical education standards and create problems for doctors serving abroad after the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) was abolished. He said the PMC would give private medical and dental colleges unlimited autonomy in setting fees and admitting students.

He said YDA’s Punjab branch, Khyber Pakhutnkhwa and Baluchistan and Sindh would observe countrywide protests on October 14 against the passage of the controversial bill. He worries that the future of medical and dental education is at stake in the country after the passage of the bill.

He demanded the Chief Minister of Sindh, Chief Justice of Pakistan and the Chief of Staff of the Army to immediately investigate the matter and remove the law.

Previously, the Pakistan Medical Commission Act 2020 was passed in a joint session after which it was sent to the president for approval. Once the bill becomes law, PMDC will be abolished and replaced with PMC.
