Indian Medical Association (IMA) is organising ‘Dilli Chalo Protest’ on June 6, 2017, to draw attention towards the “atrocities and attacks” faced by the medical fraternity. More than one lakh doctors are expected to take part in the protest march which would start from Rajghat and end at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium. A ‘pen-down satyagraha’ would be observed by all doctors across India as no doctor would give any prescriptions for one hour between 10 and 11 am on June 6.
