Delhi doctors hold check-up camps for protesting farmers 

Doctors in Delhi provide free check-up camps for protesting farmers:

For the sixth consecutive day, thousands of farmers are still protesting against the Centre’s contentious farm laws in and around Delhi for the sixth consecutive day, doctors from various hospitals across Delhi-NCR expressed solidarity with them and set up medical camps at protest sites. 

Few pictures of doctors from AlIMS, Safdarjung Hospital, Hindu Rao, and other hospitals conducting medical check-ups of the farmers have gone viral after being shared by the former president of AIIMS Resident Doctors’ Association (RDA) Harjit Singh Bhatti through a tweet.

The tweet reads: “Organised health camp for our farmers at Singhu Border. Doctors from AIIMS, Safdarjung, Hindu Rao, and other hospitals of Delhi came in solidarity for #FarmersProtest. We will organize health-camps at all 5 sites of protest. #DoctorsWithFarmers,”. 

“Expressing its full solidarity with the farmers’ movement, the PMFS has decided to lend its support to the farmers by organizing medical relief camps at the protest sites,” stated a press release by the Progressive Medicos and Scientists Forum.

The post is widely shared on social media with many praising doctors for coming in support of farmers:
