  1. We are all with you. A excellent move to come out and show our displeasure instead of being silent mute spectators for the violence being done against us. Its shame people fail to recognize that doctors are also human beings

  2. I respect and salute all our senior and Junior doctors who came out in large numbers with our colleagues and paramedical staff to support solidarity in a cause which is mostly unknown to the public and the media that hospitals are being targeted by unruly mobs

  3. I wish the public understands our pain and supports us in this cause which is long overdue. Kudos to the doctors in taking this initiative and coming out in public to highlight this matter
