Bhopal, May 31: The health services in all the five medical colleges of Madhya Pradesh remain crippled and patients troubled at the third consecutive day of 1,250 junior doctors strike to demand the enforcement of Doctors' Protection Act.
''Barring emergency services, no adverse affect is made on general services,'' laimed city-based Gandhi Medical College Dean Nirbhay Shrivastav, adding that alternate arrangements have been made in the hospital for the patients.
He said that to restore normalcy the doctors on strike had been warned and served with the notice to call-off the strike within 48 hours otherwise the hospital management could make them to vacate the hostel besides cancelling their registration.
''But no decision was made in this regard so far,'' he said.
Five doctors sat on 'kramik' strike in the premises of Hamidia Medical College and also performed an 'yaga' to provide wisdom to the state government.
Junior Doctor Association (JuDA) President Jeewan Singh Meena alleged that the doctors would not succumb to the state government's pressure and would continue.
Describing the hospital's notice as suppressing action, he added that the doctors would not vacate the hostel.
