"Whatever Government does is not our concern. Our concern is plight of patients and general public. The emotive issues does not concern us," a vacation Bench comprising Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice L S Panta observed when senior advocate L M Singhvi said that the students have no trust on the politicians and they have the trust only with the courts.

The court assured the medicos that it will hear their grievances and asked them to file separate petitions and return to work making it clear that no punitive action will be taken against them.
