Mamata Succeeds In Breaking Impasse, Junior Doctors Withdraw Strike


Kolkata: After an one-and-half hour meeting at Nabanna, Junior doctors of NRS Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata have announced that they are calling off the strike. It comes after West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee held a meeting with the doctors to break the logjam.

“We withdraw our strike after our meeting with the Chief Minister. The meeting has been positive and fruitful. We appeal all junior doctors across Bengal to resume work as soon as possible. We have decided to give time to the state government to implement our proposals raised in the meeting,” a representative of the striking doctors said at the state-run NRS Medical College and Hospital.

West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi also welcomed the resolution of the ongoing crisis caused by the state-wide strike of doctors.
