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.
