Hyderabad: Private doctors have gone ahead and formed the Telangana Indian Medical Association despite opposition from the members of the existing Indian Medical Association.

A meeting was organised on Sunday to select former superintendent of Osmania General Hospital Dr Gopal Krishna as the chairman of the association.

The committee has decided to meet again in July to hold elections for Telangana. Dr Yadgiri Rao, present secretary of united Indian Medical Association said, “The members are in a great hurry and are not waiting for the principal body in New Delhi to issue orders. It is not clear whether this is a recognised body as the parent body has not passed a resolution to create a separate IMA.”

There are 50 branches of IMA in Hyderabad and 150 branches of IMA in Seemandhra.

Location: Telangana
