One of the most senior and reputable doctors was yelled upon by worthless Congress brats, including former Minister PC Sharma over the death of the Covid-19 patient who was brought to the Government JP hospital on Saturday morning in critical condition. A video of the incident, which went viral on social media, showed Mr Sharma and former Congress corporator Yogendra Chouhan shouting at Dr Yogendra Shrivastava. The patient, who was in critical condition, died while being treated. That was reason enough for the Congress goons to verbally harass a senior doctor, who also happens to be the nodal officer in charge of Covid ward at the Government JP Hospital in Bhopal.
The video has shocked the nation. At a time when Covid-warriors must be praised, Congress and its entitled leaders are shouting and harassing senior health officials in Madhya Pradesh. Following the verbal assault, Dr Yogendra Shrivastava tendered his resignation. Condemning the incident, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan called for people to boost the morale of doctors instead of demoralising them during the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, Congress leader PC Sharma has said that he did not speak rudely to the doctor and was only involved since the patient was a member of his Assembly constituency.
Patient came to us at 12.30 with SPO2 33% he was immediately given the primary treatment and his relatives were made aware of his conditions ..We informed them that our icu is full and we can’t admit him here…and than this happened all in a span of 1 hour

What is even more brazen is the fact that PC Sharma went on to blame a supporter of his for the incident, and also justified the same saying that any ‘sensitive person’ will react in a similar way following somebody’s death. “A supporter of mine spoke loudly to the doctor following which I apologised to him. A patient of my constituency died this afternoon. In such circumstances won’t a sensitive person get angry? A poor patient is being asked to go to a private hospital, nobody is talking about this,” Sharma claimed.
Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan paid a visit to Dr Yogendra Shrivastava, and requested him to take back his resignation. After much convincing, the senior doctor relented and has withdrawn his resignation.

While the Congress and its leaders take to harassing doctors and frontline workers, the likes of Shivraj Singh Chouhan are standing by Covid warriors and requesting them to not derelict their duties due to the goondaism of a few. The incident has reinforced the need for strict measures to be taken in order to protect frontline health workers from harassment, and an example must be made out of the Congress leaders who stretched their luck in Bhopal on Saturday.
