SRINAGAR: President Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) Dr Suhail Naik has welcomed and congratulated Dr DK Manyal as new health minister of Jammu and Kashmir.
“We are pleased that the minister originally belongs to our fraternity and must be having good understanding of the pulse of the health sector,” Dr Naik said in a statement.
Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) also thanked previous health minister Bali Bhagat and said “though in his tenure our issues and demands didn’t get settled but DAK feels that his attitude towards medical fraternity was excellent”.
“Hopefully Dr Manyal’s appointment can lead to a sharper focus on issues where the eye has gone off the ball recently particularly our pay band issues, ordinance on offence against on-duty doctors and caderisation,” DAK president said.
