Schism in ranks of MP's agitating docs

Written by: Staff

Bhopal, May 17 (UNI) Courtesy a schism in the ranks of junior doctors on strike against reservation in higher education institutions, some physicians who actually favour reservation reported for duty today though health services in hospitals, linked to Madhya Pradesh's four medical colleges, remained affected.

Those who reported for work have formed a body named 'Fight for Right Association' whose office-bearer Vineet Gaur -- a former Junior Doctors' Association (JUDA) president -- said, ''We will take out a rally tomorrow from a certain hospital's campus to the Raj Bhavan where a pro-reservation memorandum, signed by about 300 physicians, will be submitted to Governor Balram Jakhar.'' On the contrary, JUDA state Secretary Piyush Vyas claimed that there was no split and no physician reported for duty.

''We burnt HRD Minister Arjun Singh in effigy and even set up a parallel OPD. Junior docs are on strike in Jabalpur, Indore and Rewa as well,'' he added.

Chaos prevailed at the local Hamidia Hospital, affiliated to the Gandhi Medical College. The management directed all senior physicians to compulsorily report for duty and cancelled leave.
