Darbhanga: Around 450 junior doctors of the
Darbhanga Medical College Hospital (DMCH) here Tuesday proceeded on an indefinite strike from this morning to press for their demand for hike in monthly stipends, DMCH sources said.
The junior doctors proceeded on the strike and have
threatened to obstruct functioning of the hospital in
Darbhanga, the sources said.
Hospital Superintendent Suraj Nayak said the junior doctors were agitated over the state Health minister`s alleged controversial statement.
They went on strike to press for their demand for hike
monthly stipends and introduction of Senior Residency Scheme.
Nayak, however, claimed that the emergency services
and OPDs of DMCH were normal.
"There is no impact of the strike so far," Nayak
DMCH junior doctors` association office bearer Amit
claimed that their colleagues attempted to obstruct the
functioning of OPDs and emergency. "We will sit together today
to decide the future course of action," he claimed.
