A day after Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya met a delegation of protesting doctors regarding delay in the NEET-PG counselling process, the resident doctors’ association of All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi (AIIMS) said that they are calling off their strike for now and all normal services would resume.
Yesterday, Mandaviya had said: “Our resident doctors have been protesting for the last few days over the delay in NEET-PG counselling. I held a meeting with a delegation of the protesting doctors at Nirman Bhawan to resolve the issue”
Advocate Vineet Jindal has written a letter to the Supreme Court urging it to take suo-moto cognizance of the protests being held under the banner of Federation of Resident Doctors Associations Of India (FORDA). It says that the appeals fo doctors to expedite NEET-PG counselling in order to reduce their workload an fulfil the overall shortage of doctor and health workers has “fallen on deaf ears”.
