The programme to introduce panel for the election of Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) unit here was postponed yesterday as a faction of Swadhinata Chikitshak Parishad continued to oppose the panel.
Scheduled to be held at Mymensingh Medical College (MMC) auditorium, the function was expected to be attended by central leaders of the parishad.
A leader of the parishad told this correspondent that the rival members of the parishad were still pressing for fresh schedule with fresh candidates from their side.
"So we decided to postpone the programme, fearing further untoward incident", he said.
We are keeping close contact with the central leaders of the parishad to find a reasonable way out and hold the BMA unit election here, said the leader.
The doctors belonging to a faction of the parishad on Wednesday ransacked the room of Prof PC Babla at Mymensingh Medical College (MMC). They attacked the room of Dr Babla, head of election commission to Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) election at MMC, allegedly after failing to get nominations.
Earlier, a group of disgruntled doctors, who did not get nomination, rejected the panel for the November 29 election and snatched nomination withdrawal forms from some candidates on November 11, the last day for withdrawal of candidature, sources said.
After the untoward incident, the election commission, headed by Prof PC Babla, postponed the election.
A panel for all 23 posts from the parishad was finalised at a meeting between central leaders of the parishad at the residence of Captain (retd) Mujibur Rahman Fakir, MP, in the capital on Saturday but the rival parishad members here rejected it, sources added.
