Kerala docs withdraw strike for a month

Kochi, December 7
The Kerala Government Medical Officers Association (KGMOA) today told the high court that it was withdrawing its month-long strike for a temporary period.

Senior advocate K. Radhakrishanan, appearing for the KGMOA, submitted before a Division Bench, comprising Chief Justice H. L Dattu and Justice K. M Joseph, that the strike would be withdrawn for a period of one month.

Following the submission of the KGMOA counsel, the Bench directed advocate-general C. P. Sudhakar Prasad to instruct the state health minister and health secretary to withdraw the suspension orders issued against some striking doctors.

The Bench also observed that the government should consider the doctors’ demands for pay revision, special pay and other demands.

Following today’s developments, the court disposed off a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Dr Ganapathy, seeking a declaration of the strike as illegal.

The doctors had been on a work-to-rule agitation to press their demands. — UNI
