Bhopal: After expelling over 1000 junior
doctors from the five government hospitals across Madhya
Pradesh, for going on an indefinite strike and crippling
health services, the State government has started the process
of getting them evicted from the hostels.

"We have already instructed the deans of medical
colleges in Bhopal, Indore, Gwalior, Jabalpur and Rewa to ask
the junior doctors to vacate the hostels," Director Medical
Education, (Madhya Pradesh) V K Saini told a news agency.

"The Gwalior Medical Hospital management has already
pasted a notice yesterday, asking the junior doctors to vacate
their hostel," Madhya Pradesh Junior Doctors Association Chief
Co ordinator Dr Yogesh Paur, said.

He said, that their stir today entered the eighth day,
adding that they won`t call it off till their demands,
including better health facilities according to Medical
Council of India (MCI) in the hospitals and a hike of around
Rs 12,000 in stipends, were met.

Dr Paur said that though the government was holding
talks with them the deadlock persists.

"The government officials are asking us to first call
of their stir and then our demands will be looked into, which
was not acceptable to us," he said.
