Puducherry, Apr 26 (UNI) The Jipmer Anti Conversion Peoples Action Committee today urged the Centre to make some minor amendments in the clauses incorporated while passing a 'Jipmer Bill 2008' in the Rajya Sabha.

Talking to newspersons here, T Murugan, president of the Committee and former State CPI(M) president alleged that a portion pertaining to the status of the empoyees had stated that employees, who wished to work in Jipmer, could continue as the employee of the Institute in the present status for one year and after one year the remuneration and other terms and conditions of the service would be altered by the regulations.

He said this clearly showed that the fate of the employees would be changed after one year when the regulations and rules under the autonomous status would evolve. The Committee objected to this and wanted the portion to be deleted from the bill while placing it in the Lok Sabha on April 28, he added.

Mr Murugan warned if the Government failed to do so, the Committee would organise an agitation to criticise the Centre on April 28 and the stir would continue.

He lauded all the leaders of political parties for extending their support to the agitations.

He said the Committee would organise a reception for Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Anbumani Ramdoss, if he initiated steps to develop Jipmer by allotting more funds and introducing more departments without affecting the employees and patients, he added.
