As thousands of farmers continued their protest against the Centre’s contentious farm laws in and around Delhi for the sixth consecutive day, doctors from various hospitals across Delhi-NCR expressed solidarity with them and set up medical camps at protest sites.
Several pictures of doctors from All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Safdarjung Hospital, Hindu Rao and other hospitals conducting medical check-ups of the farmers have gone viral after being shared by former president of AIIMS Resident Doctors’ Association (RDA) Harjit Singh Bhatti through a tweet.
“Organised health camp for our farmers at Singhu Border. Doctors from AIIMS, Safdarjung, Hindu Rao and other hospitals of Delhi came in solidarity for #FarmersProtest. We will organise health-camps at all 5 sites of protest. #DoctorsWithFarmers,” read the twee.
