GMCH Junior Doctors Stage Protest Against police assault on Doctors in Delhi


The junior doctors at Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) staged protest against the physical assault on the doctors at Delhi.

Hundreds of resident doctors from several government-run hospitals across Delhi have been protesting for the past few days over the delay in NEET-PG counselling, demanding that the process must be expedited.

The protest took a dramatic turn on Monday after the doctors and police personnel had a face-off on the streets of Delhi, with both sides claiming injuries during the scuffle.

The Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association (FORDA), which is leading the stir, has claimed several of its members were “detained” when they tried to hold a protest march from Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) to the Supreme Court on Monday.

Keeping in solidarity with the agitating doctors in Delhi, the junior doctors at GMCH also staged a protest today.

The resident doctors have been demanding that the process for NEET-PG counseling be expedited, which has been put on halt due to the outcome of a batch of petitions being heard by the Supreme Court over economic reservations.
