Calcutta High Court questions Mamata government on doctors’ strike, directs to mediate and find solution

Yesterday, the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, in a very insensitive manner had ordered the doctors to resume work within 4 hours or face action. However, the protesting doctors have chosen to defy her ultimatum until their demands of safety were met.

This afternoon while hearing a PIL filed against the striking doctors, the Calcutta High Court had questioned West Bengal government on the steps taken against the accused of the NRS hospital attack and the steps taken to end the doctor’s strike. The CM has been given seven days to respond. The court has directed the Bengal government to mediate with the doctors and find an amicable solution.

The Court was hearing a PIL filed by People for Better Treatment (PBT) against the ongoing doctors’ strike. The doctors have been protesting since Tuesday against the state government’s apathy after a violent mob attacked doctors after the demise of Mohammed Sayeed’s death at the NRS hospital. Mobs have also attacked another medical college after the Doctors shut down services in solidarity with the protesting students at the NRS hospital.

Yesterday, the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, in a very insensitive manner ordered the doctors to resume work within 4 hours or face action. However, the protesting doctors have chosen to defy her ultimatum until their demands of safety were met.

Following the attacks on doctors in West Bengal, lakhs of doctors across the country have decided to boycott work for a day to express solidarity with their protesting colleagues in West Bengal.
