Upset over yoga guru Ramdev's remarks on allopathy, resident doctors at several hospitals in national capital Delhi launched a protest as part of a nationwide stir on Tuesday (June 1) and sought an unconditional public apology or action under the Epidemic Diseases Act.

Banded under the Federation of Resident Doctors Associations (FORDA), which had called for the protest on May 29 and stressed that healthcare services would not be hampered, the doctors wore black armbands, ribbons and held up placards.

"Many doctors are wearing black armbands or black ribbons to symbolise the protest," a FORDA official said, adding, "Doctors in other cities are also joining the stir." While some doctors held up placards bearing protest messages, others wearing PPE kits had "Black Day Protest" scribbled on the back of the medical gear.
