AIIMS doctors write to PM Modi for redress of safety & infra issues

AIIMS doctors write to PM Modi for redress of safety & infra issues”

The Resident Doctors Association (RDA) of the institute on Sunday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to "put on the white apron" and "live their life for a day" to understand the stress undergone by doctors.

The letter is meant to express the resident doctors' solidarity with government doctors in Rajasthan, who are on strike for higher pay and promotions, and draw Modi's attention to the lack of resources in public hospitals, an RDA spokesperson said.

The BJP-led State Government had invoked the Rajasthan Essential Services Maintenance Act (RESMA) for three months after the strike threat by All Rajasthan In-Service Doctors' Association.

"We believe the PM is a proactive person".

"We've seen the Prime Minister wear a military coat when visiting our soldiers, we have seen him take up a broom for the clean India campaign, we now want him to wear a white apron and spend one day with us - to understand the agony of doctors and patients", Harjit Singh Bhatti, a specialist in geriatric medicine and president of the RDA, told The Telegraph.

Health Minister Kalicharan Saraf also asked the doctors to call off the strike and resume work, saying that the demands of the doctors have already been "addressed". IMA's Rajasthan branch has postponed the strike, but said that the government doctors would boycott work for at least two hours a day and if the demands of doctors were not met soon, the private hospitals would also join the protest.

"Rajasthan doctors are on strike from December 16, this strike is helplessness rather than intentional because the state government arrested 86 doctors by imposing RESMA", read the letter.

Sharma alleged that the government has failed to implement the demands were mutually agreed upon in the previous meeting and is bent on taking vindictive action against the doctors. "Please instruct the Rajasthan government to fulfill their promises and stop all atrocities against doctors", it said.

He claimed that there will be a medical emergency in government and private hospitals tomorrow as the in-service doctors have the support of private doctors association and medical teachers association.
