Siliguri, 03rd December: With the outbreak of COVID-19, the counselling of NEET-PG have been delayed despite the dates being declared repeatedly. In view of this, junior doctors staged a peaceful demonstration today, in front of the emergency department of North Bengal Medical College, demanding to speed up the process of counselling at the earliest.
Addressing the media, the demonstrators said that the counselling dates are being changed frequently and the delay in admitting new students. Thus, instead of three batches, resident doctors of only two batches are attending all the patients for the last one year. The junior doctors stated that such a situation is putting extra pressure on them. They appealed to the government including the Supreme Court to solve this problem soon.
