The talks between the striking junior doctors and the State Government have failed after both the sides stick to their stand on stipend.
The talks were held on Monday at the State Secretariat between the representatives of junior doctors and Primary Education Minister K Sailajanath, who is also a member of cabinet sub-committee on junior doctors.
Later, briefing the media Sailajanath said that the doctors were insisting for stipend of more than Rs 30,000 and were not willing to reduce the figure. He categorically stated that the government might not consider an increase of more than 15 per cent. However, he said he would discuss the issue with other members of cabinet sub-committee before arriving at a conclusion.
Meanwhile, junior doctors’ representative Aditya said that the junior doctors were earlier demanding payment of Rs 31,000 – Rs 33,000. However, in view of additional financial burden that the State might have to suffer, the demand has been reduced by Rs 2,000 for all the MBBS students. The junior doctors also denied that their agitation was political in nature. They accused the government of being non-responsive to their demands and also to the public health.
The Junior Doctors said that they were willing to work anywhere in the State, including rural areas, if the government provides them a permanent job after the Post Graduation.
The talks between the junior doctors and the cabinet sub-committee are likely to be resumed on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the junior doctors said that they would continue the strike till all their demands are met. (INN)
