GUWAHATI, March 18 - A number of organisations in the city have urged the Kamrup Metropolitan Deputy Commissioner to intervene and end the stalemate for reopening the Swahid Jadav Nath Homoeopathic College at Panjabari here.
In a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner, the Brihattar Panjabari Nagarik Mancha, the Asomi Mahila Samiti, the Bagharbori Nagarik Mancha, the Barnali Sanskritik Kendra, the Seswasevi Anusthan, the Janakalyan Mission and the Panjabari Natya Sanmilan said following the indefinite closure of the homoeopathic college and hospital, patients have been undergoing a harrowing experience.
�A large number of people in Guwahati, especially those in and around the Greater Panjabari area, are mainly dependent on the services of the Homoeopathic College for meeting their medical needs. But the sudden and indefinite closure of the College in the wake of the stir by the homoeopathic doctors and students has hit the people hard. We urge you to look into the matter and facilitate reopening of the College at the earliest,� the organisations said in the memorandum.
The memorandum further stated that the yoga centre attached to the College, too, had been closed down, seriously affecting the people.
