The Gujarat government on Tuesday threatened to sack all striking doctors of government hospitals if they did not return to work. Ninety-five resident doctors have already been dismissed.

A total of 1,200 doctors went on strike on July 23 demanding higher stipend. Those who have been sacked had refused to return to duty despite repeated warnings.

"If other doctors continue to be on strike, more terminations would be ordered," a health department official said in a statement.

The official said the government would not consider the doctors' demand as their stipend had been revised recently.
