Haryana CM likely to meet MBBS students protesting against bond policy

Wednesday, 30 November 2022 | PNS | Chandigarh

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar is likely to meet MBBS students protesting against the state government's bond policy, on Wednesday. 

The development comes days after a meeting between the agitating students and officials from the Haryana government remained inconclusive.

The meeting with the chief minister will be held at 1.30 pm in Chandigarh on Wednesday, said Anuj Dhania, an MBBS student protesting against the policy.  He said a circular regarding the proposed meeting had already been issued by the director of Pandit Bhagwat Dayal Sharma Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) in Rohtak.

MBBS students at PGIMS-Rohtak and some other medical colleges in Haryana have been holding protests for the past three weeks against the policy. Resident doctors of PGIMS-Rohtak have also extended support to the agitating students.

Outpatient department services at private hospitals in the state were suspended on Monday as doctors affiliated to the Indian Medical Association boycotted work in support of the protesting students. On Sunday, a meeting between representatives of the agitating MBBS students, resident doctors and Haryana government officials was inconclusive.

The demands of the MBBS students include a reduction in the duration of compulsory government service from seven years to one year and the bond default amount to not exceed Rs 5 lakh.
