The Homoeopathy fraternity of Punjab under the Presidentship of Dr.P.S.Ranu has issued a press statement here today stating that they will boycott the farewell function of the former medical Education Minister Sh.Tikshan sud as he had failed to deliver justice to the Homoeopathic Science during his term and has been playing stepmother role with Homoepathy stated the press note.
Dr.Ranu the member of the Central Council of Homoeopathy (Govt. of India) and Member of the Punjab Council in his protest letter to the Director Medical education & Research has stated that name of Homoeopathy has been missing in the nomenclature of the newly formed Guru Ravi Das Ayurvedic University at Hoshiarpur.He stated that all the Homoeopathic Organisations of Punjab have decided to submit a joint memorandum to the Chief Minister for change of the name of University as it should be either ‘Guru Ravi Das AYUSH University’ or ‘Guru Ravi Das Ayurvedic & Homoeopathy University’ because the University has to deal with graduates of Homoeopathy also and their degree certificates of Homoeopathic Science issued by merely an Ayurvedic University will not be justifiable.
Even Dr.Ranu has expressed concern on transfer of the existing BHMS and MD batches to this new University which are already affiliated with Baba Farid University of Helath Sciences Faridkot as they must be allowed to continue with their parent University till their completion because the present University at Hoshiarpur is not yet included in the second schedule of the HCC Act 1973 of the Central Council of Homoeopathy. These students will have to face technical problem regarding registrations and Govt. Job appointments as their qualification shall be at stake due to non-inclusion in the second schedule of the Act.
