PANAJI: It has reported that Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) on Thursday, 17 Nov, 2016 alleged that a proposal made by three pharmaceutical companies to financially assist Goa Medical College (GMC) and Hospital under corporate social responsibility (CSR) pointed to corruption in the medical institute.
Congress spokesperson Trajano D’Mello said three pharma companies have offered to build a well within GMC’s campus, supply around 100 computers and also provide LED televisions for the wards.
“The doctors will be forced to prescribe medicines and medical equipment from these pharma companies and heavy kickbacks will be given to the ring masters for that,” D’Mello alleged.
He demanded that the move be scrapped immediately, failing which the Congress would be forced to reveal the names of the ‘ring masters’.
D’Mello alleged that the GMC dean, in a meeting with all heads of departments and faculty members, urged them “to cooperate with the pharmaceutical companies”.
