In a strong rebuke against the bomb threat targeting the chief account officer’s official residence at RIMS on Tuesday night, staff members gathered in protest at the RIMS campus in Imphal, staging a sit-in near the OPD.
The demonstration, jointly organised by the Non-teaching Employees Welfare Association, RIMS Nurses Association Lamphelpat and Teachers and Medical Officers Association, highlighted the collective concern of diverse groups within the RIMS community.
Protestors prominently displayed placards bearing messages such as “Stop bomb culture in hospital premises,” “Do not threaten RIMS Employees working 24x7 for the welfare of patients and the public,” and “We condemn bomb plantation in RIMS premises.”
Expressing deep concern, president of the Non-teaching Employees Welfare Association Dr W Ranabir, while speaking to the media, said, “It is unfortunate that miscreants are attacking those who work tirelessly in medical services.”
He urged an end to threats against individuals dedicated to serving the community during the ongoing crisis.
Emphasising the relentless efforts of RIMS staff in providing medical services to the injured victims throughout the crisis, he said, “Please stop such threats to people working in medical services.”
