kolkata sources stated that Striking junior doctors in West Bengal on Thursday defied Chief Minister mamata banerjee's 2 pm deadline to join work and said the agitation will continue till their demands related to their security in government hospitals are met. Reportedly the doctors have been agitating since Tuesday after two of their colleagues were attacked and seriously injured at the NRS Medical College and Hospital in kolkata.

Meanwhile Banerjee, who visited the state run SSKM hospital around noon in the wake of disruption of medical services in several parts of the state over the past three days, warned the doctors of action if they do not resume work. Apparently a team of doctors met Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi at raj Bhavan over the issue and said the chief minister's reaction to their protest was unexpected.



Moreover the delegation reiterated the demands of the striking doctors. A junior doctor said "We will continue with our agitation till our demands are fulfilled. Our demands are simple and proper security with armed policemen at all hospitals, arrest of culprits involved in the NRS attack on Saturday under non-bailable sections, we did not expect the chief minister to say what she did. Listening to her, we felt like that we were the culprits”.
