Togadia flays attacks on doctors

New Delhi, April 15 (IANS) Praveen Togadia, face of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) for decades before being voted out, on Wednesday criticised attacks healthcare professionals and sought the Centre’s intervention to check that.

“India Health Line condemns attack on any medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, lab staff, ward staff, as well as the police. We appeal the central and the state governments to take the strictest action against attackers. Save the medical fraternity to save common people,” said Togadia.

India Health Line, a socio-medical service platform, was launched in 2014, while Togadia, a cancer surgeon by profession, was with the VHP.

Even on Wednesday, a team of doctors and medical staff was attacked by mob in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh. They had gone there to take away two Covid-19 suspects.

Earlier in Bengaluru, health workers were attacked while they were conducting door-to-door check for Covid-19 infection.

In Delhi, doctors of the Safdarjung Hospital claimed that they were attacked.

In a viral video from Indore in Madhya Pradesh, a mob could be seen attacking a team of healthcare workers in the first week of April. The team was surveying the area for coronavirus cases.
