Patna/ Chennai/ New Delhi: Medical services across the country came to a standstill on Monday after doctors affiliated to the Indian Medical Association (IMA) observed a one-day strike in protest against the proposed amendments to the Indian medical Council (IMC) Acts related to clinical establishment and private practice.The token strike, involving over 2,00,000 medics, stalled health facilities throughout the country.Hapless patients and their kin stood outside doctors’ chambers at the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH).“I have injuries on my hand, my child has suffered head injury and husband`s leg is fractured. We are hoping that his leg gets plastered as soon as possible. The doctors are saying that they are on strike and won`t be able to attend us,” Rekha Kumari, a patient, said.
