GMCH resident doctors stage protest against attack on colleague in Dhule

Doctors protest against the attack on a resident doctor in Dhule Civil Hospital in Mumbai on Friday

While hearing a PIL filed against the ongoing doctors' strike, the Bombay High Court observed, "It is a shame on the profession, if doctors go on strike like factory men then they are unfit to be doctors".

Mumbai: Following strong observations by the Bombay High Court, almost 3,000 resident doctors of 17 government hospitals in Maharashtra have made a decision to call off their mass casual leave agitation with immediate effect, the doctors' association said here on Tuesday. "Patients are facing severe hardships after doctors had gone on strike". Doctors at the hospital immediately went on strike, and it intensified on Monday, with around three-quarters of all doctors in Mumbai and many more across the state joining the strike. They are claiming that a large number of relatives come along with the patients and this puts pressure on them and affects their working.

Advocate Suresh Pakale appearing for the corporation also assured the high court that it had taken necessary security steps to prevent any incidents of assault on doctors. "We will call off the strike if security to resident doctors is enhanced", said a doctor from Sion hospital on the condition of anonymity.

The doctors are on strike to protest against recent incidents of attacks on doctors in Dhule, Nashik and Mumbai. "It looks like we will have to return next week", he said. Following the protest by doctors, police arrested the 7 to 8 accused allegedly involved in the case. In the absence of any concrete measures by the government pertaining to their security, the resident doctors continued the mass Casual Leave for the second day, Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) Swapnil Meshram said.
