Maharastra Resident doctors' strike enters seventh day, talks on

The strike by resident doctors on Monday entered the seventh day even as government officials met with the aggrieved students to negotiate their demands.

Resident doctors and interns under the aegis of Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) on Monday met Principal Secretary for Health Education, Bhushan Gagrani and other senior government officials to negotiate their demands.

"The strike is to continue as the government has offered an increase of only Rs 5,000 in stipends," spokesperson for MARD, Akash Khobragade told PTI.

The strike has affected medical services at 24 medical colleges in the state and three medical colleges under the Mumbai Municipal Corporation with close to 3,000 resident doctors and interns supporting the strike.

Doctors went on an indefinite strike for redressal of their demands which include higher stipends and better living conditions at hospitals.

The government has so far terminated the services of the doctors who are on strike and have also issued notices asking them to leave their hostels in medical college campuses.
