RANCHI: The doctors of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) met the members of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) Jharkhand, on Tuesday to demand the implementation of the Medical Protection Act in the state.
President of the Junior Doctors Association of RIMS Samual Toppo said it was decided at the meeting that a delegation of doctors would meet state health minister Hemlal Murmu and request him to propose the implementation of the act in the ongoing assembly session. The deadline for acceptance of the proposal - failing which the doctors have threatened to go on strike - has still been kept for April 4. "If no positive action is taken for the protection of doctors, we will go on strike but with the IMA's consent," said Toppo.
"If the government is insensitive, we cannot become insensitive too. Our strike will affect the society." source-articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com
