Meanwhile, doctors in the national capital are holding protest in support of the doctors’ agitation in West Bengal. The Delhi Medical Association is staging a protest at the Rajghat to extend support to the doctors in West Bengal.

Joining the doctors’ agitation, the Indian Medical Association (IMA), which has 3.5 lakh doctors as its members, has also declared a pan-India strike starting on 17th June from 6 am till 6 am on 18th June.

An IMA representative while addressing the media expressed concern over the safety of the doctors and demanded concrete action and not mere verbal assurance to ensure doctors’ safety.

The Calcutta High Court today while hearing a PIL filed against the protesting doctors, questioned the TMC government about the steps it had taken against the accused and to end the doctors’ strike. The High Court has given 7 days to the government to file its response.
