The News Insight: Whether attack on Resident Doctors in Varanasi, assault on a Pediatrician in Hyderabad, attack on a Doctor at Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi or assault on a Doctor in Bhadrak, there was no outrage as seen today. What’s happening in Bengal, is a result of a communal flare-up.
Vested interests gave the incident a communal color, taking advantage of the volatile situation in the State, thanks to Mamata Banerjee’s high handedness and appeasement politics. Onus lies on Mamata Banerjee who failed to handle the situation. She should assure and protect the Doctors. Use of force will badly backfire.
