The doctors strike in Bihar has affected health services

The strike by doctors across the National Medical Commission Bill has disabled health services, leading to trouble for normal people. In Bihar, junior doctors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Patna, Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (IGIMS) and Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) are on strike. The emergency services have been affected at PMCH and among the failure of healthcare, politics has also started on the problem.

Congress has come out in aid of the protesting doctors. Bihar Congress chief Madan Mohan Jha stated that the purpose of the government is not accurate. As per Jha, the position wouldn’t have worsened if the government had great purposes.

The Congress has claimed that the government has made the bill in an attempt to shield its inability, continuing that it supported the doctors nor the common man.

The Janata Dal-United (JDU) in Bihar in association with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), also seemed to be supporting the stand adopted by the striking doctors. JDU spokesperson Dr Sunil stated that the NMC Bill was properly produced as it could reduce the growing corruption in the Indian Medical Council.

He added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre requires to explain on many cases and gain the confidence of medical students. As per the JDU, there is confusion with the medical fraternity across the bill and the equal requirements to be discussed at the earliest.
