NEET-PG Counseling: The Delhi AIIMS Resident Doctors Association has now decided to call off their strike after Union Health Minister Dr Mansukh Mandavia promised to conduct NEET-PG 2021 counseling soon. Doctors of AIIMS in Delhi will end their strike today. A statement from the hospital said, “All services at the hospital will be running smoothly.” At the same time, the FORDA strike will continue.
In fact, clashes broke out between resident doctors and police during a walkout in Delhi on Monday demanding NEET-PG counseling. Many policemen, including doctors, were injured. At the same time, several doctors involved in the procession were also taken into police custody, much to the chagrin of the Delhi AIIMS. Expressing dissatisfaction, RDA AIIMS has increased its support to the protesting resident doctors and declared a strike for today by shutting down all non-emergency services.
The health minister condemned the actions of the police
The health minister met with the resident doctors and condemned the action taken by the police and assured a NEET-PG counseling date. Today’s strike call was later withdrawn from AIIMS RDA. Resident doctors have been protesting for the past few days.
At the FORDA meeting, the resident doctors decided to continue the strike. This information was given by Anuj Agarwal, General Secretary of SRDA. Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandavia also met with FORDA members, then Forda member Dr Manish said the health minister had assured that a counseling date would come soon during the court hearing.
Forda president Dr Manish told the media that the health minister had put two points in the meeting.
1-Asked to finalize the date of counseling
2- Monday’s incident should have been apologized for and the FIR against the doctors was withdrawn. At present no decision has been taken to stop the protest. The decision will be taken after talking to RDA.
