Once again the orders of High Court are ignored resulting in the doctors strike entering its fourth day. The repercussions are too damaging as the human life is in danger without proper medical treatment. Doctors are defiant and the patients have no escape route than visiting the hospitals in vain and return back without getting the much needed treatment. In the event of death due to lack of timely treatment the striking doctors are responsible for such a state as the stalemate of the striking doctors could not come to an end. The medicos are pressing action against violence and the men behind the attack on doctors. It is time to obey Chief Justice orders or face the consequences. The strict orders also request the government and Mumbai Civic Body to serve termination letters to doctors, who do not report duty by the cut off time and that will amount to break in service as well. It is now or never situation for the defiant doctors.
