Indore: The Junior Doctors' Association continued their strike for Day Three on Wednesday to press for their demands and also staged a ‘mobile torch’ lit demonstration at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College campus and also took out a candle lit march from the college to Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital, on Wednesday.

Along with pressing for their demands, they also staged protest against action by police to threaten agitating junior doctors and also against the incident of attack on a doctor in Assam.

Spokesperson of Junior Doctors’ Association Dr Kirti Sinha said, “Instead of meeting our demands, the government has tried to threaten us by sending cops at places of the office bearers of junior doctors who threatened our parents. Government has forced us to strike the work as we had raised our demands earlier too but they only made false promises.”

Agitating doctors said the government also tried to threaten them to take action for canceling their registration but this time, they will not return to work over any false promises. “If the minister claims that they have met four of the six demands then why can’t they give us in writing. We don’t want to strike and even our representatives are in Bhopal to talk to the government but instead of listening to us, they are threatening us,” the agitating doctors added.

Meanwhile, Dean of MGM Medical College Dr Sanjay Dixit said, “We have deployed demonstrators, dental surgeons, and other doctors to tackle the situation and we didn’t face any trouble in treatment of the patients.”

Along with supporting the junior doctors, IMA appealed to the government to listen to the students or they would also go on strike to support them (junior doctors).

“We condemn the action of the police and appeal to the government that the junior doctors had worked round the clock in COVID and now the government should listen to them. Any action on junior doctors will lead to the strike by junior doctors across the state,” Indore president Dr Satish Joshi said.
