Doctors Reach Out to President and Prime Minister
Assured of confidentiality, thousands of doctors have penned a letter to President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The focus: the unyielding stance of the National Medical Council (NMC) regarding the NEET PG 2022 exam date. Despite inadequate preparation time, doctors find themselves facing a significant challenge.
Pressure Mounts as Exam Date Approaches
Scheduled for May 21, the NEET PG 2022 exam has left many doctors distressed. They highlight the lack of time to adequately prepare due to the NMC’s refusal to postpone the exam. The doctors, driven by their dedication to their profession, express their readiness to take a drastic step if their concerns are not addressed.
Appeals to Authorities Yield No Results
Seeking support from higher authorities, doctors have approached both the NMC and the National Board of Examination (NBE). Their efforts, unfortunately, have not yielded the desired outcome. The doctors feel cornered as their academic commitments prevent them from engaging in protracted legal battles.
A Cry for Empathy Amidst Chaos
Doctors, who initially chose their profession to serve their country and its people, are now grappling with the weight of the NMC’s and NBE’s mismanagement. The lack of empathy during this urgent time has left these Covid-19 warriors feeling mentally harassed and unsupported.
A Call for Accountability
The doctors take a stand, asserting that if dire consequences arise from their distress and helplessness, the responsibility should rest on the shoulders of NMC officials, NBE directors, the Prime Minister, and other relevant authorities.
