Jammu, Sept 15: Accusing BJP government of ruining the careers of several thousands of Pharmacists and other para-medical staff who had completed their professional courses prior to State’s Reorganization, Harsh Dev Singh, chairman-JKNPP said that delay and deny over issuance of registration and licenses to all such candidates on the pretext of repeal of earlier laws was highly unjustified and atrocious.
He said that around 25,000 candidates had passed various para-medical courses prior to abrogation of Article 370 under J&K Pharmacy Act from recognized institutes in the then State who are being denied registration/licenses by the J&K government on the plea of repeal of the said Act post Re-organization of the State.

Seeking personal indulgence of Union Health Minister and Medical Council of India for recognizing the said courses in view of the same having been completed under the existing laws of J&K State, the NPP activists and affected youth led by Harsh Dev Singh held a massive protest demonstration at Jammu and torched the effigy of the central government.

The protestors raised slogans “Provide Registration, Licenses to Medical Assistants/Pharmacists of J&K UT”, “BJP Govt Hai Hai”, “J&K Ke Pharmacists Ke Saath Insaaf Karo”, “Diploma Holder Pharmacists Ko Insaf Do”, “BJP Hai Hai”.
Urging upon the central government Singh said that non recognition of the said courses would render the diplomas of all such candidates invalid despite they having passed the relevant courses as per the J&K laws.
