Junior doctors of the Andhra Medical College launched a strike on the premises of King George Hospital (KGH) here on Monday in response to the call given to that effect by the AP Junior Doctors’ Association (APJUDA).

 Nearly 750 junior doctors took out a procession around KGH.

 Addressing the gathering, Mohammad Shahnawaz, president of the AMC unit of APJUDA, said the strike would be continued until their problems were solved.

 Shahnawaz said: “We have launched the strike as the government has failed to keep its promise made six months ago to solve our problems.

” Junior doctors at five medical colleges - Gandhi Medical College, Osmania Medical College, Kakatiya Medical College, Siddhartha Medical College and Rangaraya Medical College - were already on strike since August 27, he said and added that the junior doctors would attend emergency cases.

 However, junior doctors at Osmania Medical College and Gandhi Medical College would not attend to even emergency cases.

 Shahnawaz said the Association was of the view that only the guidelines issued by the Medical Council of India (MCI) were valid with regard to medical education and rural service.

 He said junior doctors were also demanding infrastructural facilities in colleges and government hospitals in accordance with the MCI guidelines
