Mamata Banerjee’ insensitivity towards the attacked doctors in West Bengal has created a sense of animosity in the fraternity against the government. While lakhs of doctors across the country have decided to boycott work for a day to express solidarity with their protesting colleagues in West Bengal, a doctor from the NRS hospital, where the Junior doctors have been agitating since Tuesday, was seen throwing open challenges at the Cheif Minister and calling her out for her hypocrisy.

While talking to the media the doctor is seen lambasting at Mamata and her council of ministers saying that Mamata “can sit on a dharna for her chamcha (bootlicker) police officer, Rajiv Kumar, but not for doctors”? (Mamata can sit on a protest for her sycophant police officer, but not for doctors).

Mamata Banerjee had in February 2019, started her dharna in support of Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar against whom CBI launched a probe in connection with the Saradha scam.

“Aren’t we humans? Wasn’t the doctor who suffered serious head injuries in the assault a human being? If Mamata is comparing us to police officers, I ask, was her bootlicking officer, Rajiv Kumar, for whom she sat on a protest dying?” said the irked doctor while speaking to the media.

West Bengal Chief Minister showing complete apathy towards the interns attacked in NRS hospital had given an ultimatum to agitating doctors to get back to work or face consequences. She had said, “Policemen die in the line of duty but the police don’t go on a strike”.

The angered doctor while addressing the media, challenges Mamata and her council to come out of her hideout and speak to the doctors protesting outside NRS hospital. He lambastes saying that “if the CM has the guts she should come here. It’s easy to threaten at places where there is lesser number of protestors, I throw an open invitation at her to come here and threaten us”, said the doctor.

He asks the media to demand the CCTV footage of what preceded that day. The doctor questions as to why the footage which captured the culprits face is not being shown.

“What is the CM scared of? asks the doctor, why is she not facing the questions? Mamata lectures other politicians to hold press conferences, why is she not doing the same now? furthered the angered protesting doctor. He maintained that her council of ministers are participating in TV debates raising slogans on TV but aren’t talking to the doctors, why?” the doctor challenges Mamata and her ministers to face them.

Talking about the government-run hospital’s crumbling infrastructure and facilities, the doctor said that the government was spending money on useless things in the city, like street lights, uplifting the exteriors of the buildings by getting it painted in blue and white.

Trident lights that came up on many streets of Kolkata as part of Mamata Banerjee’s beautification project of the city had come under the scanner. Leaders of the opposition laid siege to Kolkata Municipal Corporation and had demanded a probe into the alleged ‘trident light scam’.

West Bengal has been burning as several protestors, even the TMC supporters have been unhappy about the incident and are protesting against Mamata Banerjee for violence against the doctors.

Doctors from all over India are now joining the protest expressing solidarity with their colleagues. The India Medical Association has declared “All India Protest Day” on Friday against the incident and expressed solidarity with the striking doctors. AIIMS, Safdarjung Hospital and resident doctors across Maharashtra will also join other doctors across the nation on one-day strike tomorrow in the backdrop of violence with resident doctors in West Bengal.

Amongst all this what emerges as a shocker is that the Chief Minister’s own nephew, Dr Abesh has been leading a protest rally showing solidarity the agitating doctors of the Nil Ratan Sarkar Medical College and Hospital (NRS). Abesh Banerjee, who is the son of Mamata’s brother Kartick Banerjee, is a doctor with KPC Medical College and Hospital. Reportedly, Abesh led a protest rally on Wednesday from KPC hospital to the NRS hospital.
