KARACHI: The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) organized a summit to discuss Pakistan Medical Commission 2019 Ordinance and Medical Tribunal Ordinance 2019 at the PMA house, Karachi.
The stakeholders rejected government’s move of dissolving the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) as the “worst action”. They demanded immediate withdrawal of the “controversial Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) Ordinance 2019”, reinstatement of all PMDC employees and restoration of PMDC as an independent and transparent body.
The summit was attended by stakeholders from Pakistan Medical Association and Pakistan Dental Association among others. Dr Imran Ali Shah MPA of PTI attended the summit briefly to express the version of PTI. He praised the ordinance and presented his arguments in its favour.. However, he immediately left after giving his arguments, which was not taken well by others as they expected him to stay and hear counter arguments as well.
