AGARTALA, Aug 5 (TIWN): As he said earlier too in his last live video from USA, in suggestion to Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb to stop revenge politics in the state, on Wednesday TIWN Editor Saumen Sarkar once again has said the same to Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb observing unexpected suspension of Dr. Uttam Bhattacharjee who was on duty in Bhagat Singh COVID-19 Care Centre on August 2nd, during MLA Sudip Barman’s visit there.

As a duty bound officer, Dr Bhattacharjee just paid his respect to the public representative, MLA Sudip Barman (also the Ex-Health Minister) and helped him to get PPEs so that he can talk to the patients about their problems.

But in a surprising move, State Govt has suspended the Doctor without any reason, neither showed any reason for his suspension. Today in protest, Doctors also demanded withdrawal of the suspension order.

Dr Uttam Bhattacharjee was suspended over a political grudge of CM Biplab Deb against MLA Sudip Barman as Sudip Barman visited COVID-19 Care centre on 2nd August and talked to patients there. The patients alleged him about the Govt's negligence in medicare and cleanliness, food. During his visit, Sudip Barman sought PPEs from Dr. Uttam Bhattacharjee and in revenge, now Biplab Deb Govt has suspended the Doctor, whereas as a duty bound officer, Dr Uttam Bhattacharjee had no other option except paying respect to the MLA. 

In a social media update, TIWN Editor Saumen Sarkar said, “I condemn AGMC’s Dr. Uttam Bhattacharjee’s suspension, it must be revoked ASAP. Once again, I request Biplab Deb to shun revenge Politics and live in Civility”. 

Amid COVID-19 pandemic, when Doctors are serving day-night risking their lives, in Tripura Doctors are again and again humiliated, attacked by public, by administration and all sides. In such a move, a Doctor named Uttam Bhattacharjee was suspended and in the suspension letter, there was no mention about the cause of the suspension. Doctors finally came in massive protest, saying, if such things do not stop immediately, then Doctors will not work.
