PMA slams private medical college at LGH

LAHORE, Sep 1: The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) Lahore office-bearers condemned the Punjab government for an alleged plan to lease a piece of land adjacent to Lahore General Hospital (LGH) to the Centre for International Medical Education (CIME) for establishing a private medical college.

Addressing a press conference held at the PMA house, PMA office-bearers showed the copies of the draft sent to the Law Department for giving a final shape to the agreement. They condemned the Punjab government for leasing the assets of the LGH, including buildings, medical equipment and furniture, for 30 years.

PMA office-bearers said they would siege the LGH board of management if the assets were handed over to the foreign company. They said, "We will stage a sit-in at the LGH along with doctors if the company will try to come in the LGH." They said the PMA would soon file a lawsuit against the government and would send a legal notice to the CIME.

PMA office-bears alleged that the lease contract did not mention the amount for the contract and that the CIME was authorised to extend the agreement. They said the chief minister had recently announced to establish a public medical school here but the new school would be a private institute. They said under the contract the Punjab government was obliged to award the university status to the private medical college.

A senior official, requesting anonymity, said that the Punjab government was going to sign an agreement with an American company to manage the assets of the LGH and to establish a private medical college. Daily times
