Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Junior Doctors
Association (MPJDA) today requested the state government to
restore the recognition to four government medical colleges
here.

"We want that the state government to immediately take
steps to ensure recognisation to four government medical
colleges was restored," MPJDA president Vikrant Bhuria told
reporters here.

Medical Council of India (MCI) had de-recognised all
government medical colleges and asked the Centre to terminate
the MBBS courses in them in 2006, he said.

Though after four years, the recognisation to Bhopal
and Indore medical colleges has been restored but Jabalpur,
Gwalior, Rewa and Sagar medical colleges still remain
derecognised which was a matter of great concern, he added.

The state should immediately address this problem as
the future of junior doctors` in these four colleges is at
stake, Bhuria said.

The government medical colleges have run short of
teachers as the professors joined private medical colleges, he
added, adding the teachers should be encouraged to re-join
these colleges.
