Bengal doctors call of the strike after meeting with Mamata

Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s meeting with protesting doctors on Monday ended with a breakthrough, with the medics calling off their strike. While the doctors said the Chief Minister had “good intentions” and dubbed her a “guardian”, Ms Banerjee accepted their demands, suggesting a 10-point plan to ensure security at the hospitals. The meeting, held in presence of the media, came as hospitals around the country suspended all but essential services in solidarity with the Bengal doctors. The matter has reached the Supreme Court, which agreed to hear a petition about the safety of doctors.
