Kolkata: Junior doctors who are on strike in West Bengal have agreed to meet West Bengal CM and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee. However, they put a condition before the Mamata government. Doctors say the conversation should be done in front of the press. Today is the sixth day of the strike.
The meeting venue is yet to be decided. Earlier, the striking doctors were adamant that CM Mamata Banerjee should come to the NRS Medical College and Hospital to hold talks. After an internal meeting on Saturday, the doctors indicated leniency in their attitude, saying that they were fully prepared for any talks, but the meeting venue would be selected later.
Earlier, doctors had rejected CM Mamata Banerjee's invitation to meet at the state secretariat. A spokesman for the Joint Forum of Junior Doctors told the press that, "We will decide on the next steps during today's Steering Unit meeting. We are ready for any kind of dialogue. A decision on the venue for the meeting will be made soon."
