Coming in support of the protesting Punjab Civil Medical Services (PCMS) doctors, chief parliamentary secretary (CPS) Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu have asked them not to join duty on a meagre amount of Rs 15,000 per month.
Targeting the state government on Facebook, the CPS said doctors should not “insult” their profession and their hard work by joining service and instead should run a private clinic for better financial prospects.
In her Facebook post, Dr Sidhu wrote that the Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act, 2010, had not been implemented in the state.
Terming the government dictator, she wrote: “It’s better to be part of the unchecked and profitable system than be part of the dictator government that tortures you every now and then with excess workload by juggling you between multiple centres, transfers you every now and then without any policy, is never sensitive towards your needs and is busy in opening new centres sans staff. Good luck and be very sensitive in treating patients.”
