Imphal, Aug 5,

Women Action for Development (WAD) expressed strong condemnation to the   untimely demise of a minor sexual violence victim of Imphal West who committed suicide by hanging herself inside her own bed room in the afternoon of 4th August 2019.  We have learn that such extreme step taken by the victim in the state is due to delaying in delivering justice system, this suicidal of victim is not the first case in the state.

Another Minor girl from Imphal West had committed suicide by setting herself on fire in the year 2018.  WAD as an organization working for the cause of women and children for the last two decades we find it as a failure of justice delivery systems on other hand lack of sincerity and concern among the Police (Investigation Officer), lawyers, Public and doctors, etc.

The major role to prevent such crime would be the government Department dealing on women and children for their protection, deputing various staffs according to their qualification to initiate their duties. Are they really doing their work in their office?  Did they provide psycho-social counseling, medical treatment to the victims in time?

WAD in a statement urged to the state government to establish Special Court for women and children in all districts of the state with its Judge and public prosecution.

 WAD also appealed to every citizen of the state including police, lawyer and concern Department to initiate for speedy justice without delay so that such incident might not happen in future and demanded for speedy justice and prosecution of the rapist without any further delayed.

IMA Calls for All India Withdrawal of Services of Modern Medicine doctors

New Delhi, Aug 5,

The emergency extended Action Committee meeting convened at IMA HQs today has called for withdrawal of services of Modern Medicine doctors of the country on Thursday August 08, 2019 from 6 AM to 6AM (next day).
The core concern of the Medical Profession has been left unaddressed in the approved NMC Bill, 2019. The call is for all the modern medicine doctors across the sectors at all levels. The medical students will continue their strike across the country under IMA Medical Students Network.
“NMC Bill 2019 is unacceptable to the medical fraternity in the current format. Licensing Community health providers who are connected to modern medicine will only invite a healthcare catastrophy where vulnerable marginalised rural patients will be affected. The Community Health Providers envisaged on NMC Bill 2019 is a direct threat to thousands and thousands of poor vulnerable marginalized rural patients.  The Health of the nation is at stake.  We demand that Government of India engage the modern medical fraternity on meaningful dialogue and address the issue urgently.” Said Dr Santanu Sen, National President IMA
IMA demands that Government of India engage the modern medicine fraternity led by IMA on meaningful dialogue and address the core concerns. IMA will continue the struggle and take this issue to people in a massive public awareness campaign.
“Section 51 talks of combined sessions of NMC with Homeopathy and AYUSH councils preparing combined modules and curriculum material. All doctors graduating out of Medical Colleges will be hybrid doctors and all the systems will be corrupted due to crosspathy. Section 51 outsources Bridge Course to the State Governments promoting crosspathy. Section 15 remains a concern to the medical students and whatever clarifications that have been provided have not cleared the air. Moreover, they have not been incorporated into the Bill. They are the biggest threat to the Health of our nation.” Added Dr RV Asokan, Hony. Secretary General, IMA
What this means on ground is that not only these providers will practise in the society as General Practitioners, they will be available as cheap labour to corporate hospitals as duty doctors, and will work in ICUs, Critical Care Units, Casualties, Emergency Units, Operation Theatres, Wards and OPDs.
The import of allowing such community health providers to be supervised by similarly qualified people will jeopardise the life of patients in our ICUs, Neo Natal ICUs, Critical Care Centres, Emergencies, Casualties, Operation Theatre, Inpatient Wards and OPDs.

Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty wins India’s biggest men’s doubles  title at Thailand Open

New Delhi, Aug. 5,

 India’s top men’s doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty created history by stunning reigning world champions Li Jun Hui and Liu Yu Chen 21-19, 18-21, 21-18 to claim their biggest career title at the Thailand Open in Bangkok on Sunday. Their win was even more significant for this was not only their first triumph at Super 500 level and above but this was also the most prestigious doubles title for India since the inception of the ranking system.
This achievement will also propel the current World No. 16 duo into the top 10 for the first time, making them the first-ever Indian men’s doubles duo to enter the elite bracket.
Satwik showed brilliant anticipation and it was his extraordinary placements from the front court that stood out in the thrilling final that lasted 1 hour 2 minutes. With Chirag controlling the backcourt effortlessly, the duo combined to take the match away from the third seeds and World No. 2 pair who had beaten the Indians at the Australian Open this year.
It was a smart strategy by coach Dwi Kristiawan to keep the 18-year-old stationed at the frontcourt that was essentially more out of necessity since Satwik had been experiencing slight shoulder pain. Playing back-to-back marathon matches for three days in a row affected him but physio Johnson Solomon and recovery specialist Srinivas G worked hard on him to make sure it didn’t curb his natural play. The duo just played lights out since they had nothing to lose.
“When we played them at the Australian Open, we lost to them very closely. We understood they were under pressure today but we had none since we were very excited to play our first final. I have some shoulder issues so we had decided that I would play more from the front and Chirag from the back. I was focussing more on the service and the net,” explained Rankireddy.
The young Indian pair started attacking from the word go with the same confidence and conviction they showed throughout the week during their wins over the World No. 7 Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto, World No. 19 Ko Sung Hyun/Shin Baek Cheol, and World No. 27 Choi Solgyu/Seo Seung Jae.
Satwik’s ability to read his opponents’ serves correctly helped his returns and very soon the Indians opened up a 10-6 lead. With the Chinese speeding up the game after the mid-game interval, the tide turned their way for a brief period before Satwik’s superb flick serve fetched them a game point which they converted.
