In order to get Medical Protection Act (MPA) implemented in Jharkhand, all Government and private doctors on Monday struck work.
Their day long strike paralysed hospitals.This affected the pateints who remained un attended by doctors.
However,the Jharkhand Chapter of Indian Medical Association (IMA) and Jharkhand State Health Services Association (JSHSA) had attended duty and performed the emergency services.
“We have been struggling for the last four years to get the MPA implemented in the State but the Government is not paying attention to our demands. Hence, we have been forced to take such a harsh step to seek attention of this Government so that the act gets implemented in the State as soon as possible. It is a combined alarm being raised by Jharkhand Chapter of IMA and JSHSA,” said JSHSA Secretary Dr Vimlesh Singh.According to Singh, despite the fact that the Act has already been implemented in as many as 18 States of the Country, the government was hesitant to take any move in this regard in Jharkhand.
