Striking doctors suffers a setback


In a major set back to the striking junior doctors, the State Human Rights Commission on Monday said that the junior doctors had no right to strike work. The SHRC took a serious view of the deaths of infants at Vijayawada Government Hospital due to striking junior doctors and as to why the government failed to initiate any disciplinary and criminal action against them. The SHRC directed the Principal Secretary, Health and director of Health to submit a report within 24 hours.

The commission took suo motu cognizance of the death of more than half a dozen infants in Vijayawada Government Hospital which was prominently reported in newspapers. The Commission is distressed at the cruel treatment meted out to the infants, whose precious lives were nipped in the bud because of the negligence of the doctors and paramedical staff which is a serious human rights violation observed SHRC Chairman B Subhashan Reddy. He said that striking the work is certainly a professional misconduct and stringent action has to be taken against such misconduct and junior doctors have no right to strike work as their duties attached to the medical profession that come within the emergency service and added that there several other ways without striking work.

The SHRC took a serious note of the government's failure to take any action against the striking doctors and it is not understandable as to why the principal secretary to government, Health department had not taken this aspect into consideration and as to why necessary disciplinary action and criminal action has not been invoked. The Commission also said that the inaction on the part of the government amounted to serious violation of human rights. The Chairman directed the authorities concerned, Principal Secretary, health and Director of Health to submit a report by 11am on Tuesday.
