New Delhi, May 15 (UNI) Health Minister Ambumoni Ramdoss today blamed the striking doctors for playing with the lives of people and threatened to take stringent action against them.

Dr Ramdoss said medical services are life saving services and by going on strike doctors are playing with the lives of people. He said action would be taken against the doctors agitating against reservation for OBCs in higher educational institutions like AIIMS, PGI, IIMs and IITs.

He also blamed the media for instigating the striking doctors by showing the indefinite strike of the resident doctors of the Central Government-run hospitals on TV channels. He urged the media to desist from covering these agitations.

Meanwhile, a high level meeting was held here to review the situation arising due to indefinite strike of the resident doctors.

The meeting was attended by officials from Delhi Government, police, Health Ministry, Home Ministry and other related departments, sources said.

Health Ministry officials said government was planning action against resident doctors if they continued to abstain from work.

They said that action will be taken against striking doctors and they would be served memos. They apprehended that the strikers were also trying to involve senior doctors in their protests.

The strike, called by the Indian medical association, is aimed to force government to roll back the proposed 27 percent rservation for OBCs in the institutes of higher education.
