To meet the shortage of doctors, the state government will soon introduce a Bill in the Assembly for appointing doctors on ad hoc basis for two years.

Health Minister Anil Vij said this on the sidelines of a BJP workers’ meeting here on Wednesday.

“MBBS doctors will be paid Rs1 lakh every month, while doctors with specialisation will get Rs1.25 lakh. They will be required to be posted at a single place for two years,” he said, adding the government had already decided to build four medical colleges in Jind, Bhiwani, Narnaul and Gurugram.

“The state has decided to increase MBBS seats in colleges to cope with the shortage of doctors in government hospitals,” Vij said.

The minister further said the state had asked the DGP to deploy home guard jawans at hospitals for the safety of doctors and paramedical staff.

On the forthcoming Assembly elections, Vij said, “The BJP will win 75 seats out of 90. The BJP will contest on development issue as the development has become synonym with the BJP.”
