Mumbai: Bombay High Court has directed the Maharashtra government to file a report on the working conditions of resident doctors in state-run hospitals and medical colleges.
After looking at photographs of some government hospitals, a division bench headed by Chief Justice Manjula Chellur on Wednesday said, “This shows that overall conditions are deplorable.”
The bench also asked the state government to inform it about the steps the government has taken to improve or rectify the situation.
The bench was hearing a petition filed by activist Afaq Mandaviya seeking action against doctors, who had gone on mass casual leave last week to protest attacks on them. The petition was posted for further hearing after two weeks, reports Financial Express.
