AIIMS Delhi docs call off strike, give 48-hour ultimatum to Bengal CM

New Delhi: Doctors of AIIMS Delhi have called off strike on Saturday. They have given 48-hour deadline to Mamata Banerjee to fulfill demands of Kolkata doctors.
The Resident Doctors Association (RDA) at AIIMS said that if the demands of the West Bengal doctors are not met within 48 hours, they would be forced to resort to an indefinite strike at the Delhi hospital.
They will continue to wear red-stained bandages and helmets as a sign of protest.
The statement said : “AIIMS issues an ultimatum of 48-hours to the West Bengal government to meet the demands of the striking doctors there, failing which we would be forced to resort to an indefinite strike at AIIMS, New Delhi. We hope that our colleagues across the nation will join us in this hour of need.”
The ultimatum has come a day after West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee gave them a four-hour deadline to withdraw their strike.
Doctors of several hospitals in Delhi, including AIIMS in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana went on a strike in solidarity with the striking Kolkata doctors on Friday.
