Junior doctors threaten strike

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, OCT. 1. Junior doctors have announced that if they do not receive their stipend by the evening of October 4 they will be "forced" to go on an indefinite strike including emergencies from the morning of October 5.

In a statement here on Friday, the Andhra Pradesh Junior Doctors' Association said that junior doctors had not received their stipend for the past five months. They suggested that the Government shift stipend to non-Plan budget from Plan budget as a permanent solution but no action was taken on this matter.

The statement said the Chief Minister's order to supplement the loss suffered by hospitals due to abolition of user charges by September 30 had not been implemented to date and the problem remained "neglected".

Even two months after Agricultural Minister, N. Raghuveera Reddy's assurance, neither had the staff list of private medical colleges been issued nor had the residential system been implemented in Osmania General Hospital, the statement said.
