MP Doctors Call Off Stir

Bhopal:  Striking junior doctors in Madhya Pradesh called off their ten-day long agitation after eliciting an assurance from the state government on their demands, including better workplace facilities, reduction in fees and a substantial hike in stipends.

Earlier in the day traffic was disrupted in several parts of the old city as junior doctors sporting marched carrying banners highlighting their demands and their strong commitment to the agitation.

Coming out of a meeting with Health Minister Anoop Mishra President of the Junior Doctors Association (JDA), Dr KK Prajapati told reporters that the association has withdrawn its agitation following an assurance from the government to address their demands as soon as possible.

JDA asked all junior doctors working in the state’s five government medical colleges in Bhopal, Indore, Gwalior, Jabalpur and Rewa to return to work on Thursday morning.

Commencing the strike on July 20 office bearers of the Madhya Pradesh Junior Doctors’ Association had listed — a raise in stipends, reduction in fees and provision of MCI-prescribed workplace facilities – as their top demands.

The withdrawal of the agitation brings respite to patients across the state.
