Junior doctors in Madhya Pradesh on Friday called off their 20-day-long anti-quota strike, but said the agitation against the proposed reservation would continue till the Centre withdraws its decision.
"Abiding by the Supreme Court directives, and for the sake of the patients, we have called off the strike", state Junior Doctors Association (JDA) working president Dr Hitesh Sharma said in Bhopal.
Junior doctors in medical colleges in Bhopal, Indore, Rewa, Gwalior and Jabalpur have been asked to resume work at the earliest, he said.
However, the anti-quota protest will be continued in the form of rallies and dharnas, Sharma said adding that awareness will be created among the masses through distribution of pamphlets and street plays.
Junior doctors at Indore, however, plan to hold a general body meeting of their city unit before resuming work, Indore JDA president Dr Mohit Bhandari said.
