Right to Health Bill protest: Police use water cannons to disperse doctors

Police used water cannons to disperse private doctors protesting against the Right to Health Bill as they tried to march towards the state assembly, where it was scheduled to be discussed on Tuesday.

The Right to Health bill, listed for discussion and passage in the Assembly, seeks to give the residents of the state the right to avail free healthcare services from hospitals and clinics, including private establishments.

Doctors who run private clinics have been agitating against the bill claiming that it will increase “bureaucratic interference” over them.
