SRINAGAR, Jan12: The striking resident doctors at valley’s premier tertiary care hospital SKIMS Soura today demanded reinstatement of sacked director SKIMS Dr A.G Ahangar
Addressing a joint press conference, Resident Doctors Association (RDA) SKIMS accused the government of blemishing the image of a reputed doctor without verifying the facts.
“We will continue our strike and make it intense incase the government failed to reinstate Dr Ahangar with honour. What was his fault? Has the government ever dismissed any police higher-up for the fault of his junior,” Dr Mir Mushtaq posed this query. Mushtaq represents Doctors Coordination Committee as a Spokesman.
DAK Spokesman asked the government to verify facts and then come up with proofs against DR Ahangar who according to him was made scapegoat.
“The move was totally unwarranted and unjustified, what makes the government to order attachment of Dr Ahangar with GAD on the basis of mere media trail? Had the government ordered any investigation before removing him as Director SKIMS?” said he.
Others who endorsed resident doctor’s strike against attachment of Director SKIMS including NRHM Doctors Association, JK Dental Surgeons Association, Doctors Association of Kashmir and Doctors Coordination Committee.
Dr Mir Mushtaq alleged that the government violated High Court orders by issuing interim appointment order for the post Director SKIMS.
“What shall be expected from this government which violates court orders, High Court is the highest judiciary of state but its unfortunate the state government took stay orders issued by it for-granted,” he added.
Replying to a question as to how far is this genuine to make poor patients suffer in the wake of strike he said the state government will be able to answer this question which puts patients into inconvenience.
“It is for the state government to answer as to why patient care suffers. Had not the government attached Dr Ahangar doctors would not have taken such extreme step. Let the government answer as to why Dr Ahangar became scapegoat,” he added.
