Supriya Sule Raises Concerns Over Security Of Resident Doctors
Sharad Pawar-led NCP MP Supriya Sule reacted to the video of the horrific incident. Taking to her official account on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), Sule raised concerns regarding the safety of resident doctors in the hospitals.
In her post, Sule wrote, “There was an incident where a gang broke into the Ghati Hospital in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar and beat up the resident doctor with a rod. This is a very serious matter. If even the doctors working in the hospital are not safe, how can patient care remain viable?”
Further seeking a thorough probe into the incident, Supriya Sule also tagged the official CMO account and Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis to attract their attention to the matter.
Sule further wrote in her post that, “Originally, this state did not have a full-time Home Minister. Therefore, this kind of thing is happening and the law and order has deteriorated. It is necessary for the government to conduct a thorough investigation in this matter and take strict action against the rioters. @CMOMaharashtra @Dev_Fadnavis”
