Enough is Enough: Dilli Chalo on 6th June
 
Dear Colleague
 
IMA has declared "Dilli Chalo" movement on the 6th of June to bring to the attention of the nation regarding atrocities faced by the medical profession.
 
The charter of demands is as follows. Kindly go through these and suggest more and also suggest modifications in the existing ones. We want to cover all segments of the medical profession (specialities, service doctors, residents, junior doctors, students, practitioners, consultants etc.). 
 
How come the government and the celebrities are watching violence against doctors without any empathetic response?
    Make violence against health care providers a non-bailable act with minimum 14 years imprisonment

How come, gradually and now consistently, modern medicine doctors are increasingly being tried as criminals? We are not against accountability but not to be tried under criminal provisions.
    We want a single window accountability under the council or under a central tribunal.
