“The present government has planned to fix the visiting fee of patients, which will be acceptable for all, for both general practitioners and specialised physicians based on their qualifications and status,” he told the Jatiya Sangsad while replying a starred question placed by ruling party lawmaker Gloria Jharna Sarkar (Women Seat-30).

“I hope that it would be quite possible to start the implementation works of the policy in the future,” Maleque said.
