Resident doctors of AIIMS have urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to live their life for a day to experience the pressure they work under, backing their protests for higher pay and promotions.
They even wrote a letter addressing the PM, yesterday the RDA- AIIMS Resident Doctors’ Association requested the PM to understand the amount of pressure they are undergoing at government hospitals due to poor infrastructure and misbehavior of patients’ relatives during emergency situations.
They said, “We are lucky to have an active PM like you, Now RDA AIIMS requests you to put white apron and spend one day as a government doctor to understand the tremendous amount of pressure we face, the agony of patients who did not get treatment, the dying healthcare system due to lack of resources and infrastructure,” AIIMS RDA president Harjit Singh Bhatti wrote in the letter.
The president said this letter should set an example to all those ministers who level allegations against doctors for cheap publicity.
“Rajasthan doctors are on strike from December 16, this strike is helplessness rather than intentional because the state government arrested 86 doctors by imposing RESMA,” read the letter.
Earlier, the Rajasthan government accepted their demands but now they refuse it, which resulted in mistrust and anguish among the hardworking doctors. The letter requested the PM to instruct the Rajasthan government to fulfill their promises and stop all atrocities against doctors.
