Tamil Nadu: Govt doctors to strike for an hour today

The demand comes after a delegation of the IMA led by President K.K. Aggarwal and its national president Ravi Wankhede met Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare J.P Nadda, seeking strict amendments in the Bill that was tabled in the Lok Sabha on Friday. However, only the emergency services in the hospitals will continue to function.

The association said that the public should understand that the National Medical Commission Bill will only create quacks by bridging courses through shortcuts and make ineligible persons the representatives of modern medicine. "The IMA headquarters declares closure of all routine services for 12 hours (6am to 6pm) from tomorrow", IMA national president Dr R. Wankhedkar said. As per the information received, the state-run doctors across the city will be going on a strike beginning from January 2, 2018, and this decision has been taken to oppose the National Medical Commission Bill.
