Mamata accepts all demands, urges doctors to call strike off

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was earlier insisting on meeting the doctors at the Secretariat, which was not acceptable to them


Kolkata: Amid the ongoing doctors’ strike in West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee appeared on Saturday for a press conference in the evening, urging the doctors to return to work. She said that her government was not going to use any kind of force and that it has accepted all the demands of the striking doctors.

Banerjee said that a government office is the best place to talk to a person sitting in a constitutional position.

Mamata Banerjee said that yesterday and today she had waited for the doctors.

However, the striking junior doctors in Kolkata have refused to meet the chief minister at the Secretariat even as doctors all over the country have demonstrated as a mark of solidarity with their peers from West Bengal. The wide impact of the strike is visible throughout the country.

Meanwhile, sources say Mamata can take the initiative of meeting the injured doctors currently admitted in a private hospital. They were assaulted by a mob of over 200 in a reaction to the inability of the doctors at the State-run Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College and Hospital to revive an aged, dying patient.

Saturday is the fifth day of doctors’ strike in Kolkata. Last night, junior doctors refused to go to the secretariat to meet the chief minister and talk. They insisted that the chief minister should visit the NRS Medical College and Hospital and talk to them.

The doctors demanded that Mamata Banerjee withdraw her statement where she had given an ultimatum to the doctors, saying that the doctors who did not return to work would have to leave the hostel.

Simultaneously, Banerjee had labelled the doctors’ strike as a conspiracy of the (M) and BJP! Senior doctors had met Mamata Banerjee yesterday but the junior doctors refused to meet the chief minister.

After the meeting, senior doctors and health officials had said that the chief minister would meet the junior doctors at the Secretariat on Saturday at 5.00 in the evening. The proposal was rejected by the junior doctors.

On the same day, Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi visited the NRS Medical College and Hospital to meet the injured junior medical doctors.

In Bengal, 300 doctors have resigned collectively to protest against the government following the near-fatal attack on two junior doctors by a Muslim mob. The doctors had to be admitted to the ICU of the NRS Medical College and Hospital, after which one of them was moved to a private hospital.

The doctors in Kolkata then demanded armed police force for security and went on strike on Tuesday.
