4,000 docs on strike, seek transfer of JJ Hospital’s Dean
Nearly 4,000 PG doctors from 18 medical colleges across Maharashtra on Friday went on a strike, demanding transfer of two senior doctors from the state-run J J Hospital here.
The Directorate of Medical Education, meanwhile, has recommended that government invokes Maharashtra Essential Services Maintenance Act to thwart the strike. Doctors have been demanding transfer of JJ Hospital’s Dean Dr TP Lahane, head of the Ophthalmology department. “We will continue our protest till the state government transfers Lahane and Parekh as they are harassing students and not fit for their posts,” said an officer-bearer of Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors.
