281 doctors have written letters to Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray seeking permission for suicide.

There are no reliable sources to back up the claim that over 280 doctors petitioned Maharashtra CM Thackeray for permission to end their lives.

There are no reliable sources to back up the claim that over 280 doctors petitioned Maharashtra CM Thackeray for permission to end their lives.According to TV9 Marathi, Uddhav Thackeray, the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, received a letter from 281 Ayurvedic physicians. The report claimed that the doctors wanted to end their lives because the Maharashtra government had broken its promises and mistreated them. The doctors expressed their displeasure with the treatment of Ayurvedic doctors by the state administration, notably during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Hindu Post report said BAMS physicians expressed dissatisfaction with their long-term assignments in backward tribal areas. Saying they had spent the previous two decades working in 18 tribal districts, often visiting isolated communities that lack even basic amenities. BAMS doctors treat locals in these backward areas for various diseases, including minor illnesses, snake-scorpion stings, malnourished children, claimed the report.

Dr. Sheshrao Suryavanshi, who was quoted in the report, stated that police and government employees serving in areas overtaken by red terrorists (Naxal-affected districts) receive extra incentive allowances. Despite this, doctors have to make ends meet at a salary of Rs. 24000, he said.

We categorize this claim as unverifiable since no credible news outlets have reported on a physician's letter to the Chief Minister of Maharastra requesting permission to end their lives, or if one was written, there is no Thackeray's response to it.
