A PIL was filed by a social activist on Monday in Bombay High Court against the doctors' agitation, seeking a direction to the doctors to report to work immediately. The Bombay High Court on Tuesday sharply criticised the protesting resident doctors' at government-run hospitals across Maharashtra on the second day of their 'strike' for the impact it was having on patients.

The following points were addressed in the hearing of the PIL:
1. The divisional bench described the behaviour of the protesting doctors as shameful. "It is a shame on the profession if doctors go on strike like factory men; then they are unfit to be doctors".
2. The judges also questioned the rationale for resident doctors staying away from work when senior doctors in the same government hospitals felt safe.
3. The petitioner's advocate said 58 patients had died across the state due to the strike.
4 The court added that continued protests might result in contempt of court as the doctors' association had in 2016 given an undertaking that it would not go on strike.
5. The HC has specifically said that the hospital management is free to initiate action and contempt proceedings against the doctors on strike.
