Read resignation letter by RG Kar Hospital doctors in a mass protest, demand unconditional apology from Mamata Banerjee

Doctors from all over India are now joining the protest expressing solidarity with their colleagues.

The Bengal Crisis has escalated quickly after Mamata Banerjee accused the protesting doctors of being ‘outsiders’ and dubbed the entire matter a conspiracy by her political opponents. Now, several doctors at the R.G. Kar Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata have resigned demanding an apology from the Chief Minister for her remarks.

OpIndia.com has accessed the resignation letters of 16 doctors at the institution. In the letter submitted to the Director of Medical Educations and Executive Officio Secretary of the Health & Family Welfare Department (HFWD), the doctors said that the situation was “not ideal” for patient care service. In light of the current circumstances, as they were unable to render their services, the doctors submitted their resignations.

Yesterday, Professor Saibal Kumar Mukherjee and Professor Saurabh Chattopadhyay issued their resignations as the Principal and Medical Superintendent/Vice-Principal respectively of NRS Medical College & Hospital. Several others from Sagar Dutta Medical College and Hospital, too, handed over their resignations.

Matters have escalated gravely in Bengal. The angst within the medical fraternity is palpable. The prevailing sentiment is that Mamata Banerjee could sit in a Dharna for her ‘chamcha’ Police Officer but is completely ignoring the concerns of doctors and interns.

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.
