Mamata Banerjee directs police commissioner to deploy nodal police officer in every hospital

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee directed Kolkata Police commissioner Anuj Sharma to deploy a nodal police officer in every hospital, during the meeting with representatives of doctors at Nabanna. She has also accepted the proposal of doctors to set up Grievance Redressal Cell in government hospitals.

As doctors' strike enters the seventh day in West Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will meet two representatives from each medical college of the state in Nabanna later on Monday. Banerjee on Saturday had extended an olive branch to the agitating doctors by promising not to invoke the stringent Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) and appealed to them to resume work immediately.

She also said that the state government would bear all medical expenses for the treatment of the two junior doctors, who were assaulted in a Kolkata hospital that triggered the strike. Both the junior and senior doctors are on strike from the past five days after two of their colleagues were attacked and seriously injured over an issue of alleged negligence at the NRS Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata on June 10.

Several doctors across the country have been protesting against the violence. The Centre has sought a report from the state government on measures taken to resolve the ongoing strike by doctors.
