CM to decide fate of KPME Bill

With Congress legislators divided in their opinion on the Karnataka Private Medical Establishments Bill, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah asked them not to openly express their views on the issue.

Siddaramaiah, at the CLP meeting at Suvarna Soudha, is learnt to have assured that he will resolve the issue after holding a meeting with Health and Family Welfare Minister K R Ramesh Kumar.

Private medical doctors have been vehemently protesting the bill, demanding that some of its contentions provisions like jail term for medical negligence, capping of fee for medical services and setting of redressal committee, should be diluted. But the Health minister has been strongly defending the bill, arguing that it is in the interest of the common man.

A section of the Congress legislators, who are in favour of diluting the bill, is said to be mounting pressure on the Chief Minister to fulfill the demands of the striking doctors.
