  1. Doctors as a community are mum on everything… whether it\’s NABH, NMC, forcing govt schemes on Pvt sector, assaults on doctors, vacant govt posts, doctors exploited by govt by giving paltry contract jobs…forced bond for rural service, hijacking of MCI, downgrading of allopathic docs by making AYUSH equivalent to them….whatever is being dished out by the dictators we are meekly following .
