They also met Governor Kesari Nath Tripathi to discuss the situation. Mamata Banerjee has accused the BJP and the CPM of engineering the strike and playing "Hindu-Muslim politics". The strike started after a junior doctor was assaulted at a government-run hospital in Kolkata by the relatives of a deceased patient. The BJP said the Chief Minister is not taking action as the miscreants are "her voters". Doctors at Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences and the Delhi Medical Association have called for a strike on Friday. The doctors told the media that they wanted armed police personnel at hospital premises, and wanted to know what action was taken in the case of the assault on a doctor at the NRS Hospital. The representatives of the junior doctors also said they felt the Chief Minister's address at the SSKM hospital sounded like a threat.
