WB doctors' strike: BJP accuses Mamata Banerjee of shielding attackers

WB, Doctors

Kolkata : Bharatiya Janata Party national secretary Rahul Sinha on Friday said that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was to be blamed for attacks on doctors in the state and accused her of shielding the attackers. "Doctors were attacked by the goons and then again attacked by Mamata Banerjee. The way Mamata attacked the doctors just to save some Muslim attackers is absolutely wrong," Sinha told ANI here.

Doctors have been protesting against the rising violence against the medical fraternity after a junior doctor of Nil Ratan Sarkar (NRS) Medical College and Hospital was allegedly attacked by the relatives of a patient who died on June 10.

Banerjee had on Thursday visited Kolkata's SSKM Hospital where she gave the agitating doctors a four-hour ultimatum to withdraw their ongoing strike and warned of "strong action" if the situation was not normalised within the deadline. Sinha also demanded the Chief Minister's public apology for bringing a bad name to the state by supporting the attackers. "This is very shocking that just for the sake of her vote bank, West Bengal is paying such a heavy price," he said.

CM Banerjee had earlier accused the BJP of perpetrating violence in the state. PTI
