The Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association (FORDA) announces to lead a nationwide strike from 27 November, Saturday due to delay in NEET-PG counseling 2021. Moreover, the association requests all resident doctors to withdraw from Out Patient Department (OPD) services from 27 November.
According to the FORDA statement, “Resident Doctors are already exhausted in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. Still have been waiting with patience for a positive response from the Supreme Court regarding the delay of NEET-PG counseling 2021.”
In addition, they stated “However, no constructive response is expected. They’re only giving physical and mental stress to frontiers. The next court hearing will be on 6 January 2022.”
The FORDA decided to strike only after discussing with Resident Doctors’ Association (RDA) members. FORDA stated that they requested the Union Government and Supreme Court to consider the issues of resident doctors.
