“All the resident doctors have gone on A strike tonight against the government’s apathy towards our demands,” said Pukhraj Pahadia, the Vice-President, Jaipur Association of Resident Doctors.

Resident doctors in medical colleges in Kota, Udaipur, Ajmer, Jhalawar, Bikaner and Jodhpur also went on strike, he mentioned

The demands included efforts by the state government to coordinate with the Centre to resolve issues regarding NEET PG counselling at the earliest, reducing the burden on residents among others.

He said that resident doctors are engaged in works related to Chiranjeevi Health Insurance Scheme and the Bhamashah Scheme due to which they get less time for studies and for attending patients in hospitals.

Pahadia said that resident doctors should be disengaged from scheme-related works completely so that they can focus on their studies.
