The Fatehgarh Sahib chapter of the Punjab Civil Medical Services (PCMS) doctor association has dubbed a notice issued to specialist doctors by the Punjab Medical Council (PMC) to end its strike within 48 hours as unwarranted and claimed that doctors have not been on strike.

The doctors, in fact, claim that have not been on strike, but have not been providing treatment that a specialist provides.

Association secretary Dr Satnam Singh Banga said, "We are not on strike. Before issuing any notice to specialist doctors, the state's executive body of PCMS doctors has to pass a resolution. The notice has been issued under political pressure. We will soon hold state-wide protest against the PMC chairman for issuing this notice."

He added that the association had met state health minister Surjit Kumar Jyani, who had assured them that the matter would be taken up with chief minister Parkash Singh Badal.
