Panaji: Services at state run Goa Medical College and Hospital and its other facilities across the State were partially affected as several doctors struck the work in solidarity with their counterparts in West Bengal.

The doctors were protesting as a part of nationwide strike call given by medical associations after doctors of Kolkata-based NRS Medical College and Hospital were assaulted by relatives of the patient.

The doctors are pressing for more stringent laws to protect them from such assaults.

Goa Association of Resident Doctors (GARD) President Veeresh HM said that majority of the doctors participated in the protest which demanded immediate arrest of perpetrators involved in the assault in West Bengal.

 “We demand immediate arrest of all perpetrators involved and a formal apology from the Chief Minister of West Bengal for her action related to the incident. We are on mass protest as support to the doctors who were attacked,” he has said in a statement released here.

“The incident that is reported in NRSMCH and the action of West Bengal Health authorities and police is very shocking making us wonder how doctors are suppose to work in such dangerous, insecure and life-threatening environment,” Veeresh said.

He said that the doctors had not paralysed the services as senior doctors were attending the patients.

Meanwhile the doctors attached to Indian Medical Association (IMA), Goa branch also extended their support to the cause by wearing black badges on arms and black shirts.

“All the doctors and members of IMA are wearing the black badges and some are wearing black shirts to show our solidarity towards the doctors who have been brutally assaulted in west Bengal medical colleges. We strongly feel that the State government there should strongly support the doctors,” IMA member and senior oncologist Dr Shekhar Salkar said.

He said that in the past similar incidents were  reported in Goa but State government saw to it that culprit is booked.
