Road blocks ahead But Anil was sceptical about the government decision since it has come from the social justice ministry headed by Dr MK Muneer.
The health ministry that has to implement the decision has maintained a mysterious silence on the issue, said Anil.“We had made several representations to Health Minister VS Sivakumar for providing the facility at least in government medical colleges, but the minister remained deaf to our pleas," Anil said.
"We don’t know whether Muneer has made the announcement after taking his colleague into confidence.”Jithendran added that the department was pursuing the matter with the health ministry.
