Federation of All India Medical Association (FAIMA) called for a complete withdrawal of all healthcare facilities across the country in protest against the violence by Delhi Police on protesting doctors.

The Federation of All India Medical Association (FAIMA), has decided to call for a complete withdrawal of medical and health facilities across India as a protest against Delhi Police, which reportedly lathi-charged on peacefully demonstrating female doctors.

FAIMA stated, “This is to inform that the medical fraternity stands absolutely shocked at the sheer display of unprovoked brute force by Delhi police on our colleague who has been peacefully protesting in Delhi and many other states since the last month, with their genuine demand for the immediate declaration of NEET PG 2021 counseling schedule. However, the lathi-charged on our resident doctors and manhandling of many female residents by the male police personnel during their peaceful demonstration is a pathetic display of the shameless attitude of the authorities, who we could believe would stoop so low.”

On the other hand, the Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association (FORDA), called for a complete shutdown of all healthcare and medical facilities as doctors were lathi-charged and detained by the police for protesting peacefully. “Black Day” is what the medical fraternity is calling this day.
