Doctors to observe 2-hour pen down strike May 30: DAK

Srinagar, May 28: Regretting the “insensitive” attitude of government towards long pending demands of doctors working in rural health care system of Jammu and Kashmir, the doctors of the state are observing two hour pen down strike on 30 May from 10 am till 12 noon.
“The doctors have been pleading their demands since decades at Directorate or Secretariat level peacefully, but it seems the authorities are least interested in resolving our issues and mere exploitation is a norm now,” said president DAK, Dr Suhail Naik.
“Understanding the sensitivity of our profession and responsibilities on our shoulders, we were very hesitant to go for pen down strike and instead projected our resentment by wearing black bands on 22nd May but it seems government is hell bent to push us to wall and are forcing us to go for indefinite strike,” he said.
“Therefore we are giving one last chance to government to wake from deep slumber and address our long pending genuine demands, otherwise from 25 June, we will be forced to go on indefinite strike and adverse consequences whatsoever will be sole responsibility of the government,” Dr Naik added.
