A group of Nepal educated doctors from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh who were planning to go to the earthquake-hit areas in the country to provide medical relief are being forced to be on standby due to logistical problems.

"We cannot go on our own without the involvement of the government agencies or else we will get stuck there without proper guidance. Our members are holding talks with politicians to arrange logistical help for our group," said Dr Veluri Vishwanath Reddy, managing director of city-based Tulasi Hospital.

A 1998 batch student of College of Medical Sciences (CMS), Bharatpur, Nepal, Dr Vishwanath, a consultant orthopaedician, added that Nepali doctors settled in the US and Australia have already started pooling in funds.
