New Delhi: Doctors working in government hospitals in Delhi are planning to go on strike if the government does not meet their demands regarding salaries and allowances.

“Government is deciding our pay scale, and does not even bother to listen to our demands. They do not even give us appropriate representation in the committee. While no doctor likes to go on strike, we will do exactly so if the existing recommendations of the 7th Pay commission are given a go ahead.” said Dr Pankaj Solanki, President, Federation of resident doctors association(FORDA).

FORDA is a body of 15000 resident doctors in the capital, and have said that government doctors from other organisations and states have shown their inclination towards the strike opposing the recommendations of the seventh pay commission.

The doctors have given time till end of May for the government to respond to their demands failing which they will go on an indefinite strike.
