HYDERABAD: It could be curtains down on the  Telangana Junior Doctors Association’s strike by Saturday afternoon as director of medical education Putta Srinivas handed over a copy of the High Court’s order which directed the junior doctors to resume their duties within 48 hours from the date of receipt of the order copy.

27h-juda.jpgJUDA members have been on strike for the past 58 days in protest against the mandatory one-year rural service and have  boycotted elective and emergency duties at Gandhi and Osmania Hospitals, and several other government hospitals in the state.

On November 19 the High Court declared the strike as illegal. Srinivas told reporters here on Thursday  that they handed a copy of the HC order to representatives of JUDA in the afternoon and took acknowledgment from them. “The stated deadline to call off the strike ends on Saturday afternoon,” he said.

About the action that will be taken if the  medicos did not call off their strike on Saturday, Srinivas said they would go by the court’s order. They would be sympathetic towards them as instructed by HC and look into their demands, he said, adding, “I request them to call off the strike keeping in view the well being of the public.”

Meanwhile, Telangana JUDA president Srinivas said they would take a call on continuing the strike or not in 48 hours.
