Over 4000 resident doctors on strike in Maharashtra

"There is urgent need to beef up security at government hospitals", an office-bearer of Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) said.

In the third such attack in a week, a resident doctor at Sion Hospital was allegedly assaulted by the relatives of a patient. Meanwhile, a petition has been filed in the Bombay High Court by social activist Afak Mandaviya.

According to some reports, nearly 75 per cent of Resident Doctors across major Mumbai health centres, including Lokmanya Tilak Municipal General Hospital, KEM Hospital, JJ Hospital and Nair Hospital, have gone on leave.

Virginia's Annual Tornado Drill Set For Tomorrow
A smaller tornado killed an Appomattox County man, and there was similar activity on the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck. March is Severe Weather Preparedness month, and Virginia annually participates by conducting a state-wide tornado drill.

On Saturday, a doctor was allegedly beaten up by the relatives following a patient's death at the Sion Hospital. "We are trying to provide more security to doctors". "Hence, we get attacked frequently and the state authorities fail to address the issue", he added. The doctors, therefore, cannot go on strike officially.

"We are keen on increasing the number of doctors (in government hospitals) as well and have taken steps towards it. It looks like we will have to return next week", he said.

After this incident, at least 2,000 doctors in Mumbai and 4,000 post graduate doctors from 18 medical colleges across the Maharashtra have joined them in the indefinite strike today. The petition argues that medical services are classified as essential services, and as such the resident doctors should call off their strike and report back to work.

A majority of Sion Hospital doctors have also not reported to work and are staging a protest within the premises.
