Bengaluru: Post Graduate students of the Minto hospital, Vanivilas and Victoria hospitals and the members of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) staged a protest at different places demanding action against each other.
Doctors have been demanding action against KRV members who allegedly assaulted their colleague. Meanwhile, KRV members demanded justice and action against doctors who were responsible for 22 people turning blind after the surgery. The victims were also present at the venue.
Medicos protested in the premises of the Victoria hospital and suspended services in OPD. Senior doctors extended moral support to the protestors. “There is no response from the government even though we are protesting from last three days. The protest is going to continue on the Wednesday also,” said a protesting junior doctor.
“We are getting support from all over the state. The protest will start in other medical colleges also. Nursing and Paramedical staffs are also extending their support to us,” he added.
KRV members maintained that they had not assaulted anyone and challenged to doctors that if there was any proof let them come out with it. They also maintained that, it is being done willfully to hush up the big scandal.
