“ In government sector, health institutions have been exempted from such MBBS signatory, why is it being thrust upon the private sector?” Rangrez asked.

“ We request LG Manoj Sinha to kindly look into the issue and ease the stress and mental agonies of around one lac populace related to the cadre in the field”, Rangrez said.

Further Mohammad Azad, as per the statement, gave an in depth scenario of the issue in terms of ‘strategies being adapted to malign the images of technicians who are well versed with their technical qualifications and are right arms of doctors in practice’.

“ It was demanded that one time relaxation be given to assure that general laboratory owners are not compelled to come to roads for such an issue or close down their establishments in view of unwarranted approach of authorities”, the statement reads.

Besides, the media was briefed about the misuse of registration number of association and it was demanded that various departments should take action against such culprits four to five in number who are using the association’s registration number for Kashmir Diagnostic Center Association and are projecting themselves as leaders of trade.

“The government at large was informed that if such miscreants are not dealt with at an earliest, the association shall not be responsible for any of their illegal, unwarranted anti-social or anti-national activity”, underlined the statement.

The meeting was attended by senior-most laboratory technicians who are also the founders of association including Nissar Ali, Ab Majid Gattoo, Mohammad Maqbool, Bashir Ahmad in presence of district presidents of Kashmir division besides other members of PDCA JK.
