Chennai, Nov 17 (UNI) Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss today clarified that there was no move to introduce a Bill, during the winter session, making one year rural posting compulsory for medical students and asked the medicos to give up their stir.
Talking to newspersons after distributing degrees and diplomas to the yoga students here, he said the ministry would take a decision only after Dr Sambasiva Rao Committee constituted to go into the issue, submitted its report.
The Committee, which was asked to elicit views from different sections of the society after visiting 20 places all over the country, is yet to submit its report, he said.
If the medicos launched an agitation under the misconception that a Bill would be introduced during the ongoing session, they would be doing it only at their own risk, he said.
The medicos had renewed their agitation by boycotting the classes and decided to continue the stir, till the government gave up its move to extend the MBBS course to six and a half years by making one year rural postings compulsory.
