Doctors miffed with PM Modi's remarks on them in London

"Prime Minister Modi's cavalier conduct of foreign policy at the Commonwealth Summit in London and the bilateral meeting with the British prime minister is hurting India's national interests", Sharma said in a statement.

India, as one of the foremost cricket-playing countries, offered on Friday to train youngsters from Commonwealth countries at its world-class facilities under a plan that drew much applause at the meeting of heads of state and government in London. The flag has been replaced. Police officers and a politician are under investigation in two of the unrelated cases. "Engaging in small talk and maligning the entire medical fraternity in India with a broad brush on foreign soil was certainly not expected out of the prime minister of the country.IMA expresses its displeasure on your unfortunate remarks", IMA Secretary-General Dr RN Tandon said to ANI.

Prime Minister Modi is in the United Kingdom for bilateral talks and the multilateral Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). They have regretted the incident.

Aaj Tak, which is a part of the India Today Group, posted a video of the journalist being almost pushed and threatened by the protesters, allegedly supporters of the pro-Khalistan movement.

According to agency reports, almost 500 protesters were gathered upon Parliament Square holding placards that read "Modi go home" while others condemned the incidents of rape. There were also some people part of Kashmiri separatist groups who even surrounded the Mahatma Gandhi statue at the Square with their banners and flags.

Modi, who faced criticism from hundreds of protesters in London for his silence on the aforementioned rape cases, stressed on the importance of teaching men to respect women as a precursor to curbing rape in India.

They were joined by other protestors carrying images the eight-year-old rape victim from Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir, and Gauri Lankesh, the Indian journalist who was shot at her doorstep last year. "Don't politicise rape incidents", he was quoted as saying by PTI.
