The Congress Friday said the violence against doctors in West Bengal is absolutely reprehensible and urged the medical community to take up their duty towards the sick and hapless. The party also asserted that no one should instigate the doctors from refraining to serve.
The doctors have been agitating since Tuesday after two of their colleagues were attacked and seriously injured at the NRS medical college and hospital in Kolkata. "Violence of any kind calls for a blanket condemnation. But violence against doctors, who have dedicated their lives to save and cure others, is absolutely reprehensible & unacceptable," Congress's chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted.
"No one should instigate the doctors from refraining to serve. We call upon the medical community to take up their duty toward the sick and hapless, under their ward and care. The INC stands with the doctors unequivocally," he said.
