The state government on Thursday issued notices to all the junior doctors who have been striking from their duties more than a month now. The issued notices directed them to join the duty immediately. A letter has been written to the parents of the junior doctors to intervene and instruct their children to join the duty as the medical services in the state are highly disturbed.
Meanwhile, speaking on the issue, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao said that the government will take any firm decision in this matter only after the High Court’s order. Anyhow, he was keen on the decision to increase the mandatory rural service term to two years from the existing one year.
Dr P Srinivas, , secretary general elucidated, “There can be an amicable solution if they end the strike and agree to talk. The junior doctors have failed to realise that they have been striking for a month now. Yet, the services at the government hospitals are not affected. Their study time is being wasted.”
