Raipur. In Chhattisgarh’s capital Raipur, the strike which was going on for the last 6 days has been called off by the junior doctors. It is being told that a delegation of junior doctors has reached CM House to meet Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Tuesday. Just before this, Congress leader Sushil Anand Shukla and Indian Medical Association President Rakesh Gupta had reached Ambedkar Hospital to persuade the junior doctor who was on strike. After discussion with the representatives, it was decided to postpone the strike.
According to the information received, for the last 6 days, 3000 junior doctors of the state were neither attending OPD nor working in any kind of emergency in government hospitals. Dr. Prem Chaudhary, President of the Junior Doctors Association, says that the junior doctors of the state get less honorarium than the nearby state MP, Jharkhand. In other states where there is a fund of up to 90 thousand rupees. Whereas in Chhattisgarh only 50-55 thousand rupees are available. Bonds of 4 years are not filled in any state. This is happening only in Chhattisgarh. The honorarium has not been increased in the last 4 years. Because of this the step of strike had to be taken.
Ambedkar sat on strike outside the hospital
The Health Minister listened carefully to the demands of the junior resident doctors, looked at the stipends of other states and found the stipend available here to be less. He justified the demands of Judo. After this, the Finance Ministry has been urged to take immediate action on it. Junior doctors were sitting on strike outside Ambedkar Hospital in Raipur. Dr. Rakesh Gupta, President of the Indian Medical Association is also supporting them. He justified this step of junior doctors and said that soon the health department should take a decision regarding them.
