We have accepted all their demands: Mamta on doctors’ protest
West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamta Banerjee, earlier in the day, has canceled her meeting with Paribaha Mukhopadhyay, one of the interns who were assaulted at the NRS Medical College and Hospital, whom she was scheduled to meet along with the state health secretary and MoS Health.
But the doctors’ have sought an unconditional apology from Banerjee and set six conditions for the state government in order to withdraw the stir. West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee today addressed the media on the ongoing doctors' protest and said, "We've accepted all their demands."
She added, "I sent my ministers, principal secretary to meet the doctors, waited for five hours to meet doctors' delegations, but they didn't come." Calling the assault "unfortunate", Mamata said the state is fully committed to take necessary steps.
A severe assault on junior doctors in Kolkata’s NRS Medical College and Hospital triggered the backlash. Paribaha Mukhopadhyay, one of the injured interns, wound up with a fractured skull and is currently in a coma. The Indian Medical Association has called for a nationwide strike on Monday, 17 June.
