Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court on Thursday requested private hospitals and medical practitioners to immediately withdraw their strike.

The court said it hoped that the medical practitioners, who are learned persons, will realise the gravity of the situation and their responsibility towards society.

A Division Bench comprising acting Chief Justice H.G. Ramesh and Justice P.S. Dinesh Kumar made the request in its order while adjourning further hearing on PIL petitions, which have complained about severe hardship caused to public at large due to the inhuman decision of medical practitioners to go on strike.

The Court said that it can pass appropriate orders to deal with the issue but is in favour of doctors themselves withdrawing the strike.

The Bench adjourned further hearing to Friday after the Advocate General said that the State government has an open mind on doctors’ grievances and will table the bill only after meeting doctors’ representatives later this evening after the Chief Minister meets heads of committees that are looking into grievances of the doctors against amendments to the Karnataka Private Medical Establishments Act.
