Postpone Finalisation of HDMP & NDMH

CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury has addressed a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi today requesting that the central government postpone the finalisation of both the HDMP and the NDMH before parliament concludes its consideration on the PDP Bill. This is light of the government seeking comments on the Health Data Management Policy by September 3, 2020

The full text of the letter is being released herewith.

Dissolution of MCI

Utilizing the need for removal of Desai, the Government has brought an ordinance to dissolve the entire council shortly after the Parliament session. This shows the absence of minimum democratic norms. The Government should have taken Parliament into confidence before dissolving an autonomous body set up by an Act of Parliament.
