Shahjahan, Manikganj: The doctors of the district have held a press conference demanding the abolition of the expired Manikganj district committee of the Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) and a new committee. Dr. spoke at a press conference held at the Manikganj Press Club auditorium on Thursday afternoon. Mostafizur Rahman, Sadar Upazila Health and Family Planning Officer, BMA Central Councilor Dr. Lutfar Rahman, Dr. Humayun Kabir, Dr. 27 doctors including KM Russell, resident doctor of Mehnaz Tabassum, Sadar Hospital were present. The doctors of the district have been carrying out various programs including human chain at different times demanding to dissolve the committee formed in 2012 and form a new committee. The Center last directed to form a committee on May 26, seven working days. Even after that no effective steps are being taken to form the committee. Dr. Lutfar Rahman said that Dr. Pankaj Kumar Majumder, the Chairman of the Interim Committee for 12 years, retired from the government service 6 years ago. It goes without saying that the doctors have no contact with him. They are doing what is necessary to destroy such an important professional organization. But despite repeated requests from the center, they are disobeying it. Speakers at the press conference said that both of them are still members of the District Independence Medical Council (Swachib). Dr. Rajib Biswas, general secretary of the term committee, said that the allegations of the press conference were false and fabricated. Elections were held once in 2016 but they were not held. I have not been able to renew any of my members for 7 years. There are only 11 life members in Manikganj district. With these 11 people, it is not possible to get elected. Then the date of the election was announced once and as such, is your committee not going to be canceled from then on. In response to such a question, he said, this committee will remain in force till the election is held. How long will you hold the election? He said the election will be held only after the renewal of members. How long will it take? He said, it will happen only when the center decides. What is the reason for non-renewal? He said it was not happening because of local, central and structural complexities. Asked how he runs the organization from Dhaka to Manikganj, he said, "I do chambers in Manikganj. It's not a problem."
