On the occasion of completing 50 years of its inception, the Federation of Medical Representatives Association of India held a mass rally covering several Indian states, which was warmly welcomed in Udaipur today. This was followed by a flag hoisting ceremony and blood donation program held at the MB Hospital campus.
In his introductory speech at the Flag hoisting ceremony held at the Agarwal Dharamshala, Regional Vice-President, J. S. Naruka gave a detailed description of the federation and the work done by them in past years.
Sanjeev Khandelwal, Regional Chief Secretary, in his address slammed the government policies against Medical Representatives.
He said, “the Central Government of India is not interested in controlling the price of medicines, which led the pharmaceutical companies to introduce prices of their own, which adversely affects the common man”.
“In the past three years, Foreign companies have acquired a huge chunk of the Indian Pharmaceutical market. In the coming days they will get these medicines patented and sell them at a very huge price”, he added.
R.P Singh, National Secretary of the organization said that their year long journey will cover 375 centers and will conclude in February 2013 at Kolkata. They are committed to achieve the target of receiving 25000 units of blood in this journey.
Surendra Singh, Secretary of local center From Udaipur informed that 52 units of blood were donated from Udaipur today. The procession will pass through several centers of Rajasthan before entering Delhi.
