Gana Dharna at Sambalpur in support of Director VSSIMSR

The stand off between the PG students and the VSS Institute of Medical Science and Research (VSSIMSAR ) continued for the fourth day today as both sides remained adamant on their stand. While the students demanded the removal of the Director A Pujari, the Director wanted the students to beg apology for assaulting the students and pelting stones at his official residence. Meanwhile 66 of the total 116 doctors appointed by the government joined today at VSSIMSAR to extend medi care facilities to the patients.

A delegation of the students are camping in Bhubaneswar and requesting Health and Family Welfare Minister Pratap Jena to concede to their demand and resolve the problem. Hundreds of people from Sambalpur, Jharsuguda, and Bargarh district today sat on a Gana Dharna at Nelson Mandela chowk demanding action against doctors who are creating indiscipline in VSSIMSAR.

Several Speakers alleged that some doctors are utilizing the students and to disrupt treatment to the poor patients. The agitators said “In no case we will support the PG students’ demand,” and threatened that if any action is taken against the Director Dr. Ashwini Pujahari , then they will not keep silent”. “The agitating students should feel the pulse of the people and change their demand for action against the Director,” said Mr Sapan Mishra of Pascimancal People’s Forum (PPF). The parents of the students should convince their wards to withdraw the agitation and call off their cease work agitation said Mr Mishra. Similarly another speaker Mr Suresh Pujari demanded action against PG students who attacked Dr. Pujahari’s residence last week.

“Action is also needed against those who are instigating students for such wrong paths,” Mr Pujahari demanded.
