Resident doctors in Delhi took to the streets on Monday to protest the delay in NEET-PG’s counseling.
In Delhi, on Monday, December 27, a large number of residential doctors took to the streets in protest of the NEET-PG counseling delay. Many doctors have even “returned their lab coats” and marched in the streets in support of the movement. The ongoing movement of doctors has affected the treatment of patients in three central government-run Delhi hospitals – Safdarjung, RML and Lady Hardinge’s hospitals, as well as some government hospitals in Delhi.
The Federation of Resident Doctors Association has been protesting for the past few days. Association president Manish claimed that a large number of residential doctors had symbolically returned their aprons (lab coats) on Monday. “We also tried to march towards the Supreme Court from the Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) campus, but as soon as we started, the security personnel stopped us from moving forward,” he said.

Manish further alleged that several doctors were “arrested” by the police and taken to the police station. After a while he was released. He further alleged that police forces were used to injure several doctors. The association posted pictures of clashes between police and protesters on its Twitter handle.
However, the police denied the allegation of baton charge or wicked speech on behalf of them and said that 12 protesters were arrested and later were released. He said the protesters blocked the ITO road for 7 to 8 hours. He repeatedly asked her to leave, but she refused.
According to a police official, “We have talked to the members of the association and tried to resolve the issue, but they have blocked the road.” Police said that while removing protesters from the road, they tried to tear the police uniform. They broke the glass of the police car and abused the soldiers.
