MP: Medicos of 5 medical colleges on strike demanding hike in stipend, reduction in fee

JUDA is demanding a reversal of extra charge and examination fee imposed by the MP Medical Science University (MPMSU) for PG courses. The association is also asking for resident doctors being housed in proper accommodation in hostels and hospitals and senior resident ships being provided for all diploma candidates.

Bhopal: Five medical college Junior Doctor Association’s across Madhya Pradesh along with  Class III and Class IV employees have been on an indefinite strike since Monday over issues like a poor stipend, improper canteen facilities and poor sanitation in all the Medical Colleges and Hospitals. The  Additional chief secretary (ACS) and Directorate of Medical Education (DME) have been sought for appointments to resolve issues.

The strike encompasses government medical colleges in Indore, Gwalior, Bhopal, Jabalpur and Rewa

Dr. Sanjay Yadav of JUDA Bhopal said, “Initially we ran parallel OPD just to draw the attention of the government toward our demands but the government did not take any initiative for the fulfillment of our demands.” “We had also informed our HoDs and boss regarding our demands. But even they looked least bothered about our problems,” he added.

He said, “We were left with no option but to go on a strike.” “We are hopeful that our meetings with ACS and DME will yield some concrete solution,” he added to the FPJ.

It is reported that the state invoked Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) on Monday, however, the JDA continued its strike.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Medical College’s, Dean, Dr Navneet Saxena confirmed that absentee doctors had been reported to the police in a written FIR. Other colleges are supposed to follow suit, wherein junior doctors would be issued notices about ESMA calling the doctor’s stir illegal,  which has severely impacted government-run hospital’s functioning.

About 1,200 strong MP JDA president, Dr. Sachet Saxena said, “After a meeting, it has been decided that junior doctors would continue to stay off-duty until our demands are met.”

JUDA is demanding a reversal of extra charge and examination fee imposed by the MP Medical Science University (MPMSU) for PG courses. The association is also asking for resident doctors being housed in proper accommodation in hostels and hospitals and senior resident ships being provided for all diploma candidates.
