Dimapur, June 13: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has appreciated the creation of posts of doctors and Nurses by the Government of Nagaland.
“Nation is running short of doctors to cope with ever increasing Covid-19+. We must have enough doctors even in all outpost stations,” said NPCC president K Therie in a letter to the Chief Secretary of Nagaland.
Therie observed that India has few lakhs of foreign medical graduates who were rejected by Medical Council of India in screening examination. More than 80% are rejected annually in MCI screening examination, he said.
Stating that the action of MCI is absurd, Therie said, “After registering with MCI, students are given permission to study in the medical colleges identified and listed by MCI. After completing FMG they are rejected through MCI screening test examinations destroying the future of children and throwing parents to mental trauma. Government of Nagaland need not fall in the net and discriminate our children.”
The NPCC chief recommended that the State Government take unilateral decision to appoint and use the services of doctors. “Their services will belong to the State and no one has the authority to question the State decision,” he added. (Page News Service)
