The second round of talks with the Haryana government by the MBBS students protesting against the bond policy also failed on Sunday. On this, in support of the students, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has decided to close OPD and emergency in private hospitals across the state on Monday. Dr. Punia Asija, State President of the Indian Medical Association, has written a letter to the Chief Minister to withdraw the bond policy.
If the demands of MBBS students are not met, then on November 28, private hospitals will stop OPD and emergency services. In the five-hour marathon meeting with the CMO officials, the students have now announced to intensify the agitation after not being able to agree on a single point.
Hunger strike of MBBS students continues at Rohtak PGI and Karnal’s Kalpana Chawla Medical College. In Rohtak, it has been claimed that the health of two students has deteriorated. At the same time, the protest of MBBS girl students at Bhagat Phool Singh (BPS) Women’s Medical College in Gohana is going on. Haryana Civil Medical Services Association has also joined the students’ movement.
CMO officials could not convince
Students from Rohtak reached Haryana Niwas at 3 pm. He was accompanied by Dr. SS Lohchab, Director, PGI Rohtak. Principal Secretary to Chief Minister V Umashankar, Additional Principal Secretary Dr Amit Agarwal, Additional Chief Secretary Medical Education and Research G Anupama and DMER Dr Aditya Dahiya held a meeting with the students from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Now the problems of patients may increase as OPD services in PGI and Kalpana Chawla Medical College are already affected.
