All-India Doctors' Strike Monday, Centre Blames Mamata Banerjee

There have been demands for such a law and the latest incidents of violence against doctors in West Bengal and ongoing protests have put it in spotlight.

Junior doctors across all state-run hospitals in West Bengal have called for a strike, demanding adequate security in medical colleges and hospitals, after two of their colleagues were brutally beaten up at NRS Medical College and Hospital in the city. The doctor was allegedly hit with a brick on his head, leaving him with a fractured skull.

Patients are facing huge difficulties across the nation in the wake of the massive protest.

The country's top medical body also announced a nationwide strike on Monday. On Friday, only follow-up patients with a prior appointment were registered in OPD, while registration of new patients will be done as per availability of the faculty.

"I will have to take my father somewhere else for his dialysis, maybe a private hospital", she told Reuters. Doctors and other members of the medical community tweeted with the hashtag #SaveTheDoctors, stating that they will be boycotting work and standing in support of the young doctor who was attacked and that the protests will continue until action is taken. However, the outpatient department and diagnostic services will largely remain suspended, he added.

Santosh Kumar also narrated his ordeal and said due to strike they are forced to take treatment for his mother from a private hospital and being a poor he can not afford it. The staff at the hospital said that the doctors are on strike.

Doctors under the banner of the Resident Doctors' Association (RDA) held out marches in the AIIMS campus, with many wearing bandages on their foreheads while some worked wearing helmets.

However, it’s not easy to tell which one of those sources offers authentic exam dumps that will help you pass your test. All you need to do is to identify the best site for exam dumps, and you will pass your certification test with flying colors.

Telangana Junior Doctors Association (TJUDA), based out of Hyderabad, and the Resident Doctors' Association at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (RDA, AIIMS) in Delhi issued statements to come forward and protest in solidarity against such attacks.

Around 1,600 resident doctors of Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital will also go on strike.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA), has reportedly directed members of its state branches to stage protests and wear black badges in solidarity with West Bengal doctors. A memorandum submitted to the governor by the junior doctors is being sent to the state government for appropriate action, officials said. She then gave an ultimatum to the doctors, which ended without the protesters calling off their strike.

Holding West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee responsible for "allowing the situation to get out of hand", the Health Minister said: "Ultimately, the Chief Minister should have been able to contain the situation".

He further appealed to West Bengal CM Banerjee to not make it an issue of prestige.

Earlier on Wednesday, both Trinamool Congress and BJP leaders urged normalcy of health services in West Bengal and requested the hospitals to resume work.
