The Health Department of Madhya Pradesh has had an effect after Aamir Khan’s Satyameva Jayate discussed female infanticide in its very first episode. The department has suspended the licence of 65 MTP centres (medical termination of pregnancy) due to them not submitting the reports in the format as prescribed by the department. If the centres are able to produce the required updated forms by the coming Monday, the suspension will be annulled.
Meanwhile, Aamir Khan also met Rajasthan Chief Minister Gehlot to appeal for a fast-track court to be initiated for actors involved in a sting operation. He also appealed to the Rajasthan CM to take action against the doctors involved in such a nasty crime. Gehlot on Tuesday tweeted: “Satyamev Jayate is a great and extra ordinary initiative to root out female foeticide. I am eager to have a fruitful dialogue with Aamir on May 9.”
