AIIMS resident doctors rue PMs remarks in London

New Delhi: Flaying Prime Minister Narendra Modis reported remarks in London last week on alleged nexus between doctors and pharma companies, the AIIMS resident doctors association today rued that the PM used international platform to curse his "hardworking and dedicated fraternity."

"The RDA, AIIMS strongly condemns PM Modiji?s remark on doctors that we are getting foreign trips in reward of writing costly medicines. This is utterly shameful to generalize and paint black whole medical fraternity, that too on an international forum," the RDA said.

 The RDA said Indias medical fraternity commands immense respect globally as reflected by the growth of the medical tourism in the country, which, the resident doctors said, has also become the world?s largest exporters of pharmaceutical products, but the Prime Ministers remarks would seriously dent the efforts of all doctors and the entire pharmaceutical industry.
 "We accept their are a few black sheeps in all professions including in Modijis government but you cannot generalize the corruption and make fun of doctors on international platform.

"This is the first time when a PM of any country used international platform to curse his hardworking and dedicated citizens," said Harjit Singh Bhatti, AIIMS RDA president.

The AIIMS RDA has also written to the Prime Minister over the issue expressing its anguish, urging him to put on a white apron and spend a day as a doctor in a government hospital with them to understand the level of stress they face.
