CPI(M-L) submits memorandum to President

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: A new impetus has been given to the campaign to secure release of doctors arrested in Bihar for allegedly treating Nepali Maoists with the CPI (M-L) petitioning the President, A. P. J. Abdul Kalam.

In its memorandum to the President, the Delhi Committee of the CPI (M-L) urged Dr. Kalam to intervene in the matter and secure the release of the doctors.

The CPI (M-L) has requested the President's intervention to ensure that the charges of high treason, sedition and all other such charges framed against the doctors be dropped. Equating the treatment of the doctors to harassment, the CPI (M-L) in its memorandum invites the President to reflect on the consequences of asking doctors to discriminate between patients for their political views.

Noting that the Indo-Nepal Treaty of 1950 allows unhindered travel by Nepalis into India, the memo requests the President to create a situation where doctors are free to carry out the duties that they swore to perform by taking the Hippocratic oath upon qualifying as doctors.
