Dr Harsh Vardhan also appealed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee to not make this an issue of prestige.
He said that he will write to West Bengal CM and will also try to speak to her on this issue. Earlier, Ms Banerjee gave agitating doctors an ultimatum to resume their work and warned of strict action against them.
