The old proverb, man proposes but God disposes is holding true with Food and Drug Administration in Haryana. While the FDA is proposing to launch massive crackdown against evil practice of sex determination tests, illegal termination of pregnancy and quacks; the Indian Medical Association's state unit, the powerful body of private and government doctors of the state, is allegedly taking all out efforts to dispose FDA's efforts.
Not only IMA even deputy chief medical officers who are nodal officers to check such illegal activities have joined hands with unscrupulous elements. These elements having political patronage have succeeded in getting Dr. VK Govila, Chief Medical Officer of Rohtak shifted from Sonipat and then again to Rohtak as in charge of an unimportant health centre for not obeying political instructions in hushing up case against a quack of Suniara village of Rohtak district.
She was allegedly working as a doctor with the help of a forged degree and was reportedly conducting illegal abortions for the last several years. Shockingly even after a month of conducting the raid and registering of case under Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act a and PCPNDT Act, Police is yet to arrest her.
When contacted National Rural Health Mission's (NHRM) director Rakesh Gupta didn't say anything on this issue and asked to speak to Inspector General of Police of Rohtak Range.
Members of Indian Medical Association have recently gone on strike to protest against raids on clinics in Rohtak, Sonipat and Jhajjar districts. An IMA delegation led by Rohtak unit's chief Dr. Sunil Munjal had met Haryana Chief Minister, Bhupinder Singh Hooda at Rohtak and urged that before the registration of cases, the matter should be first probed by issuing a notice.
Hooda according to Munjal assured them that he would seek report from the concerned authorities.
