Rajshahi city clinics withdraw strike

The private clinics and diagnostic centres in Rajshahi city withdrew their strike, clamped protesting “excessive fine” imposed by lawmen, after talks with local administration today.

The authorities of the clinics took the decision following a meeting with the local administration, reports our local correspondent.

“They assured of looking into the matter. They said two detained managers will be released,” Abdul Mannan, president of Rajshahi Private Clinic and Diagnostic Centres’ Association, said.

Yesterday, a mobile court led by Rab members fined around Tk 8 lakh to three private clinics – Amana Hospital, Royal Hospital and Delta Diagnostic Centre – in the city’s Laxmipur area for using expired equipment yesterday.

Two managers of Amana and Royal hospitals were also picked-up by the law enforcers as they were unable to pay the fine immediately.

Operation at most of the clinics in the city remained suspended since last evening mounting sufferings for patients.

When asked, Sarwar Alam, executive magistrate of the mobile court, said, “We issued the fine as per the law. If the clinics’ authorities think they are right then they can go to the higher court”.
