18th Amendment: Dissolution of PMDC ruled out
Islamabad: Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) would continue to exist as the only means to ensuring uniform standards for all the medical practitioners in the country.

This was stated by Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar, Registrar PMDC while talking to reporters here on Tuesday.

Answering a question about devolution of subject of health to provinces under the 18th Constitution Amendment, he ruled out dissolution of the council saying that as a national standard setting body for medical education and registration authority for all doctors, the PMDC would continue to function.

He welcomed the formation of Punjab Healthcare Commission and informed that similar bodies had been in existence in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for a longtime.

He further said the step was not aimed at usurpation of power of the council a federal body having jurisdiction in the whole country he said he had been assured by the Chairman of the Commission Justice Amir Raza that the commission would respect the Federal Law and would not have anything to do with registration of medical practitioners or their deregistration nor would it have anything to do with medical education or medical and dental colleges in Punjab.

Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar said that PMDC did not have the jurisdiction to register or set standards for small clinics, dispensaries and hospitals and this vacuum had been gracefully filled by the Punjab Healthcare Commission.

The Registrar said that it had been agreed between the commission and the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council that if there was any complaint of negligence of a healthcare establishment in Punjab it would be referred by the PMDC to the Punjab Healthcare Commission
and if there was any complaint of negligence of a practitioner registered with PMDC it would be referred by the commission to the PMDC for further action as per respective laws.

Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar was quite categorical in saying that registration of doctors and setting of standards of accreditation of teaching hospitals and medical colleges fell under the domain of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council and this fact had been acknowledged by the Punjab Healthcare Commission and there was no cavil about this.

Kidnapped ICU VC given four-year extension
Peshawar: Chief Minister Ameer Haider Khan has approved four-year extension in service to the kidnapped vice-chancellor of Islamia College University Ajmal Khan.

Appointed as first vice-chancellor of the university on June 26, 2008 for four-year term, Ajmal Khan was kidnapped by unknown militants from outside his official residence at the Professors' Colony on September 7, 2010.

Later the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) accepted responsibility for his kidnapping and released his three video tapes in a bid to pressure the government to accept their demands.

The government and the law-enforcement agencies have failed to secure his release. The 60-year old academician is a close relative of the ruling Awami National Party (ANP) President Asfandyar Wali Khan and this was apparently the reason for his kidnapping.

On a number of occasions, senior officials in the government made off-the-record claims about early recovery of the vice-chancellor but it didn't happen.

The teachers and students across the province also didn't show enough reaction to press the government for making effective efforts for the recovery of the vice-chancellor. In the first few months after his kidnapping, some demonstrations were arranged to demand his recovery.

Before the fresh notification by the chief minister about the extension to Ajmal Khan, it was generally believed that he has been forgotten.
