Rajasthan doctors strike enters 7th day

Rajasthan government is working on many fronts to address the doctors strike that claimed fifty lives so far even as patients at government hospitals across Rajasthan continue to suffer as the strike entered into seventh day on Tuesday.  Earlier four hundred doctors were arrested on Monday under essential services maintenance act.
The state government has transferred 377 doctors to rural areas from urban or semi urban places while two chief medical officers and ten doctors were sacked late night  on Sunday. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad appealed to the doctors to call off the strike.
