The medicos also blocked the Out Patients Department (OPD), stalling all services. pping their demands, the striking students now want that Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to hear out their demands.
Over 500 junior doctors, including postgraduate students, interns and junior residents of Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital have been on strike since Tuesday, Jun 1 to protest against the lack of basic services.
A meeting between the junior doctors and the hospital administration on Monday, May 31 ended inconclusively. The medical superintendent even threatened to rusticate junior doctors. The students had staged a protest this Apr by blocking the Ring Road opposite the hospital.
The administration had then promised that their issues would be resolved, but refused to give a deadline.
