Jaipur: Government doctors in Rajasthan, who had announced to go on a two-day mass leave, withdrew their plan early on Tuesday after a meeting with a sub-committee of ministers.

The state government last night invoked RESMA (Rajasthan Essential Services Maintenance Act) last night and banned their proposed strike, but invited a delegation of the doctors for talks.
"There is now understanding on our time bound promotions and we have decided to call off the proposed strike," Dr Nisreen, who was part of the delegation, said.

The meeting between the committee comprising Medical and Health Minister Duru Miyan, Industry Minister Rajendra Pareek and Energy Minister Jitendra Singh and the doctors` delegation began late on Monday night and ended at around 2.30 am.
