Bhopal, May 31 (UNI) The health services in all the five medical colleges of Madhya Pradesh remain crippled for the third consecutive day of the junior doctors strike to demand the enforcement of Doctors' Protection Act.

''Barring emergency services, no adverse affect is made on general services,'' claimed city-based Gandhi Medical College Dean Nirbhay Shrivastav, adding that alternate arrangements have been made in the hospital for the patients.

He said to restore normalcy, the about 1250 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 vacate the hostel besides cancelling their registration.

''But no decision was made in this regard so far,'' Dr Srivastav said.

Five doctors sat on 'kramik' strike on 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 their strikes.

Describing the hospital's notice as suppressing action, Dr Meena added that the doctors would not vacate the hostel.
