BANGALORE: Most of the 911 government doctors who had submitted their resignations on Monday returned to work on Tuesday, bringing relief to patients across the state. The doctors had resigned from their posts over the Karnataka Government’s alleged failure to meet their 14-point charter of demands.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah told media persons on Tuesday that he would meet the doctors on Wednesday and try to resolve the issue. Maintaining that suspending work would bring disrepute to both the government and the doctors, he said, “The government is open to hear their grievances and solve their problems.”
Appealing to the doctors to withdraw their two-day-old stir, he said that “the government will not accept the resignations in the interests of the smooth functioning of health services”.
Health Minister U T Khader, who was present, said, “I have had talks with the doctors association members and am confident of resolving the issue.”
