Mamata agrees to live coverage of meeting with protesting doctors

The decision was taken in a general body meeting which was held to decide if they should accept the CM's invitation to meet two representatives from each Medical College of West Bengal at 3 pm on Monday. "We will not meet behind closed doors", the agitating doctors said.

On Tuesday, a student doctor interning at the NRS Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata was allegedly attacked by the relatives of a recently deceased patient at the hospital.

However, doctors on Sunday appeared to soften their stand after public pressure started rising against the continued strike, especially after the government agreed to their demand of beefing up police protection at government hospitals to protect them from miscreants. I also confirm that the discussion and resolutions taken in this meeting shall be recorded and duly communicated to you.

Banerjee had sought to meet the doctors on Friday and Saturday at the state secretariat, Nabanna, but the doctors turned down the request insisting that the venue be NRS. They had claimed that they have not received any official invitation from the state government regarding any meeting.

The doctors have been demanding media presence in the meeting to maintain transparency claiming that they have been the " biggest sufferers" in this strike.

"We are keen to end this impasse", a spokesperson of the joint forum of junior doctors said.

In the meeting, a doctors' delegation apprised Banerjee of the problems they have been facing at medical colleges and hospitals and said they fear for their safety.

According to one report in The New Indian Express, Dr S Kanagasabapathy, State President of the IMA stated, "We will go on strike for 24 hours on Monday, and only emergency services will be attended to".

Doctors from Delhi, Haryana, Jaipur, Kerala and other places have joined the strike in a show of solidarity.
