INDIA Team Latestly|

Madhya Pradesh High Court on June 3 directed the striking junior doctors in the state to resume their duties within 24 hours. However, the protesting medicos remained defiant & nearly 3,000 of them resigned from their posts & announced they will challenge the ruling. The court termed the four-day-old strike as "illegal". Nearly 3,000 junior doctors working in the six government medical colleges of the state resigned en masse from their posts on June 3. They submitted their resignations to the dean of their respective colleges, Madhya Pradesh Junior Doctors Association (MPJDA) president Dr Arvind Meena told PTI. The strike, which began on May 31, will continue till their demands are fulfilled, he said. The junior doctors have put forward multiple demands before the state government, including a hike in stipend & free treatment for them & their families if they contract the deadly coronavirus infection. Meena said the state government has already cancelled their enrollment for the third year PG & therefore they won’t be able to sit for examinations. Meena claimed on May 6, the government authorities promised to fulfil their demands but nothing happened after that, forcing them to stop work. Watch the video to know more.
