The Delhi High Court on Thursday expressed concern over the ongoing strike at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and asked the Centre to take immediate action to resolve the crisis.
"We are conscious and we must be concerened on the issue. The government must act to sort out the problem because patients are facing problems," a Bench comprising Chief Justice MK Sharma and Justice Sanjeev Khanna said.
"If you (Centre) do it today then its OK but if you fail to resolve the crisis then we have to take action," the Bench said adding that the government cannnot deny certificates to doctors.
The court's observations came when advocate Aggarwal informed the court that patients are suffering because of the ongoing strike at AIIMS.
