Resident doctors went on strike to protest attacks on doctors by the relatives of patients. Bombay High Court reprimanded resident doctors and asked them to resume the duty but the doctors did not relent and the agitation continued.
Patients across the country were pouring into Mumbai for treatment but were left stranded due to the strike called by the resident doctors. The state government also intervened but to no avail. In support of the resident doctors various private hospitals were also closed for a couple of days creating a very critical situation. In the end, representatives of the doctor's met Chief Minister Devendra Fadanvis and finally relented after the state government assured them of proper security.
State Government and High Court asked doctors to be on duty. The Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) told the Bombay High Court on Friday that doctors will resume the duty. Docs will be resuming duty after six days of the strike.
