There has been growing discontent amongst the young doctors across India about Mamata’s response to the incident where a young doctor got seriously injured and is hospitalised.
Talking of her administration’s role in this situation Mamata said “We never arrested a single person. We will not take any police action. Health services cannot continue like this. I am not going to take any stringent action. Let good sense prevail.”
Despite her appeal the junior doctors have decided to continue the agitations further .
As per reports the junior doctors Mamata is diverting from the main issues and trying to malign the people.
