Silchar, Dec 16: Barak Valley Homeopathic College Demand Committee (BVHCDC) in a memorandum addressed to the Chief Minister of Assam and submitted through the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar on Friday reiterated its demand for the establishment of a homeopathic college at Silchar. This has been a long pending demand raised by various social organizations before the state government, but without any positive outcome. This has always been highlighted in the local and regiol media, print and electronic, from time to time. Sadly enough, till date no move has been taken up by the state.

Nobody can deny the imperative need of homeopathic treatment which has been an essential part of the health system. Without homeopathic treatment, the very concept of traditiol and time-tested treatment of health can never be complete. It is not only an easy method but also quite affordable for all sections of people. Poor and have nots are much benefited. lini Mohan Dash, president of the Demand Committee, said this valley is the home to 40 lakh people and the establishment of a homeopathic college is quite justified. In the absence of any such institution, the number of homeopathic physicians is negligible.

This has stood in the way of proper homeopathic treatment to the people of this region. Lack of qualified doctors has produced hundreds of self made homeopathic physicians in this Barak Valley. But, this self made physicians cannot be ignored or sidelined since they are the best helpers of the poor, helpless and oppressed people of the society. It is they who are maintaining a balance between allopathic and homeopathic system. These self made experienced homeopaths should be given recognition by the government in the larger interest of suffering humanity.

Referring to Sarbanda Sonowal, Chief Minister, as a popular leader of the masses and an efficient as well as dymic persolity, Dr Prabal Paul Choudhury, general secretary of the Demand Committee, has reached out to him with the appeal for a homeopathic college at Silchar. Before the mami Barak festival, he reminds the Chief Minister of his assurance of a homeopathic college. Unfortutely, since then nothing has happened. He also brings to his notice that a delegation of the Demand Committee met him at Dispur and pleaded for such a college.

Dr Prabal Paul Choudhury has sought date and time for an appointment with the Chief Minister at Dispur to discuss the matter of public interest. It is undeniable that the present government has taken up a lot of developmental works but there is no place for a homeopathic college. It is the expectation of the Demand Committee and the people of this Valley that on the eve of ensuing Panchayat elections, the state government will come forward with a positive decision on the issue. The decision to have a homeopathic college at Silchar was unimously taken at a meeting of the Demand Committee on September 24, 2017 and a copy of which was sent to the office of the Chief Minister. The present memorandum is just a reminder of that resolution.
