HYDERABAD: In an attempt to convince protesting junior doctors to end their strike, which has been going on for over 50 days, DME Telangana Dr Putta Srinivas met TJUDA members on Thursday.

During the meeting the DME laid down two points to the protesting doctors on behalf of the government. “Keeping in view the public welfare and patient care, the government wants all the junior doctors to resume duties immediately. Secondly, the government will your demands sympathetically,” Srinivas told TJUDA members.  “The DME has only agreed to sympathetically view our demands but there has been no attempt to understand the core of our issues,” TJUDA president G Srinivas said.

‘’We are still awaiting a copy of the court order, after which we have 28 hours to continue the strike. So the strike will go on till then,” he said.ens
