NEET PG counselling: Doctors protesting delay call off strike


New Delhi: Residents doctors across the country who were protesting against the delay in NEET PG counselling called off their strike on Friday morning.

The doctors had been protesting for past 15 days demanding that the much-delayed NEET PG counselling be scheduled at the earliest. They had also demanded quashing of the FIR against the protesters.

Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya had recently met the protesting doctors and assured publishing of the NEET PG Counselling schedule at the earliest. He had also expressed regret at the assault of protesters by Delhi police.

Mandaviya said that no punitive or disciplinary action would be taken against any resident doctor who took part in the agitation on December 27.

“A virtual meeting of FORDA (Federation of Resident Doctors Association) with all RDA Representatives was convened late in the evening whereby… all concerning points were discussed in details. It was unanimously decided to call off the agitation by 31st December 2021, 12 pm, considering various factors including patient care,” said FORDA in a release.

FORDA will convene a national meeting with all RDA representatives on January 6.
