Shimla, Feb 21
State Congress Chief Kuldeep Singh Rathore has expressed concern over prolonged pen-down strike of doctors in the state. Seeking intervention of the government he has demanded to end the deadlock and hold sympathetic talks with agitating doctors.
HPCC leader said that people are facing a lot of hardship due to the two-hour pen down strike. People who are coming from far off rural areas of state are facing a lot of problems due to the ongoing agitation.
Rathore accused the government of discriminating them by adopting different measures to address their genuine interest and wage anomalies.
Expressing surprise at not holding any dialogue with the doctors, he said that since the fear of Corona is still looming large, the strike of doctors is worrisome and regrettable. He also urged the doctors to give priority to the health check-up of the people while postponing their struggle for the time being in the public interest.
These days the outbreak of cold has increased in the state and people have to run around for their health check-up and other treatment.
In such a situation, even the patients who come in emergency have to go through a lot of trouble if doctors did not attend them, he added.
