Delhi doctors call of strike
New Delhi: Around 1200 doctors of Delhi`s Safdarjung Hospital called of their two-day long strike after the government assured them of safety at workplace.
Although it is not yet clear whether the authorities have agreed to their demand for deployment of Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) in the hospital`s security, but clearly some sort of an agreement has been reached on the issue.
What might have also played in the minds of the doctors is that the government had given clear indications that may consider invoking of the Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA), under which a striking doctor can get upto six months in jail.
The doctors had gone on a flash strike following their claims that one of their female colleagues was manhandled by some outsiders on Sunday, when a patient succumbed to dengue.
They said the hospital administration had failed to ensure the security of doctors despite the issue being taken up several times.
