Striking Doctors Set Terms After Mamata Banerjee's Ultimatum
Striking junior doctors of Kolkata's government hospitals today defied Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's 2 pm deadline to get back to work, saying that won't happen until they get better security. They also met Bengal Governor Kesari Nath Tripathi to discuss the situation. Mamata Banerjee has accused the BJP and the CPM of engineering the strike and playing "Hindu-Muslim politics". The strike started after a junior doctor was assaulted at a government-run hospital in Kolkata by the relatives of a patient who died. The BJP has said the Chief Minister is not taking action as the miscreants are "her voters".
