PCMSA observes ‘Black Day’ over Baba Ram Dev’s comments on allopathy
Ferozepur, June 1, 2021: The Punjab Civil Medical Services Association (PCMSA) Punjab today opposed the recent utterances of Ramdev against allopathy and allopathic doctors in his public speeches. PCMSA decided to wear black badges on June1, as a mark of protest and demand that Baba be booked under Epidemic Act for blatantly violating Government guidelines and protocol for Covid.
PCMSA observed a black day today in view of the inaction by the government against self styled Health care expert Ramdev despite his various derogatory, provocative and ill intentioned statements. Further, PCMS Doctors across the state wore black badges while on duty.
State President Dr Gagandeep Singh,and other Office bearers, Dr Gagandeep Shergill, Dr Indervir state Org. Sec, Dr Manohar,Dr Simranjit, Dr Ranjit Rai, Dr Chandershekhar, Dr Gurmail, Dr Simranjit, DrSharin, Dr Akhil, Dr Madan, in a joint statement said that these series of irresponsible statements show his utter lack of any respect for the law of the land. The mockery of sacrifices by our fellow COVID warriors who met martyrdom fighting the pandemic is utterly unacceptable.
Deliberate acts of public harm like vaccine denials and promotion of unscientific remedies for COVID 19 endangers the very core of the long fight our country has been collectively fighting against this pandemic. The PCMSA warns the government that inaction against such people not only demoralizes our front line warriors but also misguides the general public towards pseudoscience and superstitions. There seems to be a covert attempt to cover up the erratic supply and shortage of Vovid vaccine and failure to timely vaccinate the target population.
