Patients across Uttar Pradesh continued to suffer Monday as the strike
by doctors entered its fourth day. Junior doctors and other medical
practitioners have struck work in many parts of the state following
arrest of two dozen junior doctors in Kanpur after a scuffle with a
Samajwadi Party (SP) legislator.
Following the arrest of junior doctors and cane charge, doctors have
stalled work at the OPD, emergency and trauma centres. Doctors at the
King George’s Medical University, Lucknow; SN Medical college, Agra;
Gorakhpur Medical College and hospitals at Pillibhit, Kannuaj, Etawah,
Bulandshahr have also closed down.
With the talks between the striking doctors and Health Minister Ahmad
Hasan late Sunday failed, a delegation of the Indian Medical
Association (IMA) will meet President Pranab Mukherjee in New Delhi.
They will inform the president of the police excesses against doctors
and complaint against Kanpur SSP Yashaswi Yadav. Kanpur IMA president
Aarti Lalchandani, who has been leading the charge against SP
legislator Irfan Solanki and Yadav, was Monday booked by police on a
complaint of inciting doctors for the strike.

Police also carried raidsat her house. Lalchandani said the strike would not be called off until the 24 doctors are released without any conditions.The Kanpur police, however, struck a discordant note Monday and sent
the arrested doctors to jail. Striking doctors alleged that since both
Yadav and Solanki were close to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, the
state officials were not paying heed to them and siding with the duo.
