ATGDA GS Dr Rajesh Chowdhury, IMA GS Dr Souvik Debbarma, AGMC Teachers Council President Dr Damodar Chatterjee and other senior Doctors remained present during the protest at GB hospital. "Doctors are Scared, Shocked over the ongoing attacks, actions on them", said a Doctor during protest in demand of withdrawal of suspension order of Dr. Uttam Bhattacharjee.

Talking to media, a senior Doctor said, “We are shocked after acknowledging about the suspension order of Dr Uttam Kumar Bhattacharjee. He is an eye-surgeon basically, but due to COVID-19 crisis situations, he is posted in Bhagat Singh COVID-19 Care Centre, although a Medicine Doctor is needed in that Centre.  But still, he is doing his duties due to Doctors’ shortage but he is now suspended illegally. In the COVID-19 Centre, the responsibility goes to the Civil Officers mainly including food and sanitizing. Doctors duty is only about treatment”. Doctors sat in protest against Suspension of Dr. Uttam Kumar Bhattacharjee after he provided PPEs to MLA Sudip Barman at Bhagat Singh COVID-19 Care Centre. Agitating Doctors also raised question how "Spitting on Doctor" incident's accused received bail. TIWN Video Aug 5, 2020

“But amid Coronavirus pandemic, if Doctors are continued to treat in such manners, then in the coming days, nobody will be doing duties properly”, said the Doctor.
