The PM's effort to establish generic medicine stores in government hospitals have been given the short shrift by doctors, in Ahmedabad-based VS Hospital, who push branded drugs of multinationals. Poor patients cannot get medicines from the generic medicine store in the AMC-run hospital as doctors at the hospital insist on medicines of particular brands, which are only available outside the hospital. The staff at the generic medicine store complain of having no other option but to send back patients empty-handed.

As per sources, doctors send patients back to return generic medicines and insist on buying medicines of particular brands. Health minister has ordered a probe into the issue as the practice of prescribing a particular brand of medicine is now against the guidelines of Medical Council of India.

Why Mr.Ramvilash paswan is allowed to take treatment in UK. Has he carried generic medicines? His expanses will be paid from tax paid by ordinary people.Why not stop that by law.why that is not announced by P.M in public meeting and law is passed immediately?
