Patients continue to suffer

New Delhi, Dec. 29 (Delhi Crown): Resident doctors who are on a strike in Delhi against the “delay” in NEET-2021 PG counselling on Wednesday reiterated that their agitation “will continue”.

This assumes significance even as hapless patients in the national capital are not able to get necessary medical treatment, with minimal services being provided at the hospitals.

A senior doctor at Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital told THE DELHI CROWN that the striking doctors resort to “high-handedness” with any medical practitioner who wishes to join his/her duty at the hospital to serve the ailing patients.

The doctors had “withdrawn” from all services last month. On Monday evening the doctors had declared a ‘complete shutdown” after they alleged “brutality” on the part of the Delhi Police at ITO while they were carrying out a “peaceful march” up to the Supreme Court.

The NEET-PG counselling has been delayed as the Apex Court is scheduled to hear a plea over some reservations issue on January 6.

Talks between the Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA) and the Union health ministry had failed on Tuesday.
