Interim OPD saves the day for patients

Medical college and hospital was a scene of pandemonium with protesting students on the one side and junior doctors initiating an outpatients' department on the other, causing apparent commotion amongst patients. The groups, under the name of 'Youth for equality' are behind these protests.

Patients have expressed consolation at the opening of the parallel OPD. A patient Bimal Chandra Majumdar said "Normally, I have to wait for hours before a doctor can attend to me at the OPD. But today, the entire process was over within 10 minutes at the parallel unit."

This parallel OPD will hold fort during the protest, which is slated to intensify. The hunger strike that was originally planned for 24 hours will continue for 48 hrs.
