SC flays medicos' strike

May 30, 2006 12:05 IST

The Supreme Court on Tuesday expressed its displeasure that agitating medicos did not pay heed to its appeal to call off their ongoing strike.

"We specifically said yesterday, for larger public interest, the ongoing strike should be called off. On the contrary, opposite is going on. We are not concerned at this stage about the government policy. We are concerned at this stage about the plight of the people," a vacation Bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice L S Panta said taking suo motu note of the developments.

The apex court said, since the matter was sub judice, no comment, protest and agitation could be made on the issue.

The court asked the government to file a memorandum before it on Wednesday giving details of the latest position vis-a-vis the ongoing strike and protest.
