Patna, Dec 5 (UNI) Inspired by the 'Gandhigiri' protest in a recent Bollywood movie, thousands of junior doctors in Bihar today adopted a unique way to oppose the proposed Union Government decision to increase the duration of MBBS course to 6.5 years, including a one year term in rural areas.
The junior doctors assembled at the busy Dakbunglow road crossing in the heart of the city and started cleaning vehicles waiting for the green signals, besides those parked on the roadside during the peak office hours thereby generating a lot of curiosity among the onlookers.
In some other busy junctions, the medicos also swept roads with brooms as a mark of their silent and peaceful protest stalling movement of traffic.
The lady intern doctors of Nalanda Medical College here also did not lag far behind and took out a silent procession near the institute with each carrying a rose bud and a poster requesting Union Health Minister A M Ramadoss to marry them.
'' The prospect of our getting married will be a far cry since by the time we become an MBBS doctor our marriagable age would pass by, '' said one of the placard0carrying lady junior doctors.
Later an effigy of Mr Ramadoss was burnt by the agitaing medicos.
