JUNIOR DOCTORS of Radiotherapy Department, Gandhi Medical College (GMC), burnt the effigy of Health Minister Ajay Vishnoi here on Thursday.
They had launched an indefinite strike on Wednesday to protest the State Government’s apathetic attitude towards their demands of a separate 30-bed ward for cancer patients and steps to secure the Medical Council of India (MCI) recognition for the department amongst others.
Junior doctors of other departments extended their support to the strike by wearing black badges to work here on Thursday. Class III and IV employees of the hospital are also supporting the strike.
Madhya Pradesh Laghuvetan Karmachari Sangh President Ulfat Singh Yadav, Madhya Pradesh Swasthya Karmachari Sangh General Secretary Rajjolal Khatik and others joined the striking doctors at the dharna site in front of the emergency ward of the hospital.
