AAP MP Sanjay Singh exposes ignorance about symbolic protest, questions why protesting doctors have injury at the same place

When informed that doctors are putting symbolic bandages, Sanjay Singh said it is not right

After claiming that the income of Delhi Metro will increase due to free metro travel scheme for proposed by the AAP government in Delhi, party’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh displayed his ignorance while reacting to a photograph of doctors demanding action against the goons who had attacked doctors in a Hospital in Kolkata.

Reacting to a photograph with new agency ANI logo on it, Sanjay Singh wondered whether it is really an ANI photo or is it Photoshopped, since all the doctors in the photo seem to have injuries on the same place. All the doctors in the photo have bandages wrapped around their heads, with a red patch on the forehead.

It seems that the AAP leader is not following the news about the doctors’ strike in Bengal which has received support from doctors in the entire country with symbolic protests. And as a mark of protest against the attack on doctors at NRS hospital in West Bengal, doctors are wrapping red-stained bandages on their heads, and some were also seen wearing helmets. The image that Sanjay Singh reacted to is from AIIMS, where the doctors did the same. This is similar to the use of black bands used in protests, and everyone in the country knows that, except the AAP MP.

Later Sanjay Singh tweeted that one journalist friend has informed him that doctors in AIIMS are protesting with fake bandages, and added that this is not right. He said that doctors should stay away from such protests because from such images a narrative can be created that doctors in the entire country are being beaten.

Mr Singh clearly does not understand the meaning of the use of symbols in protests, and he thinks that people will mistake the symbolic bandages as the result of real attacks on the doctors.
