Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Jan 8: The J&K Branch of Homoeopathic Medical Association of India (HMAI) has demanded the Government to provide equal job opportunities to Homeopathy graduates in J&K.
The Association appealed MoS in Prime Minister’s Office Dr Jitendra Singh to issue necessary instructions to the Government of J&K to consider the Homoeopathic graduates equally in the bridge course for the community health programme.
“The Homeopathy graduates should be given equal opportunities and their due share in jobs in the upcoming Health & Wellness Centres under the AYUSH Mission so that the public at large in J&K may also get the benefits of the Homoeopathy which has been recognized as the second most popular treatment by the WHO,” said Dr BR Dubb, president of the Association, in a statement issued today.
Working president of the Association, Dr Raj Kumar and general secretary Dr Satish Attri demanded to solve the matter pertaining to the time bound promotions of the Homoeopathic medical officers and at the same time hailed the MoS for taking steps for the establishment of the first ever Homoeopathic Medical College in J&K.
“Homoeopathic doctors were demanding for the college since very long and it was one of the prime demands of them which has been considered & now fulfilled by the Minister. Ever since the recognition of homoeopathy by the erstwhile Government of J&K in 2003, this is the first major boost to homoeopathy in J&K under the present Government,” said Dr Ranjan Tuli and Dr SD Sharma (senior-vice-presidents).
