The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has demanded that the government take immediate steps to stop violence against doctors.

Harassment by administration is nothing but violence by the State. Our patience and restraint are signs of strength.Our legitimate needs for safe workplaces have to be met. Abuse and Violence should stop immediately."
