Doctors of Rajasthan's government hospitals on strike

Submitted by cgpiadmin on Sun, 01/01/2012 - 22:30

Doctors working in Rajasthan's government hospitals have been on strike since December 21, on the issues of parity in wages and time-bound promotions. 6000 doctors are militantly fighting for their rights.

Till date, the state government has sent 500 doctors to jail in an attempt to break the spirit of the striking doctors. The Congress and BJP have made every effort to throw mud on the reputation of the striking doctors. Both the parties have collaborated in their attempts to paint this picture that the doctors don’t care about the sick and that many patients have died because of the strike. The government has declared the strike illegal and imposed ESMA. However, the striking doctors have kept their spirits high and forced the government to negotiate.

Alongside the doctors of government hospitals, 20,000 employees of the National Rural Health Mission have also gone on strike. These employees are contract workers. Their strike has substantially impacted the health services in the rural areas.

The resident doctors of the government hospitals have also gone on strike in support of the permanent doctors.

Mazdoor Ekta Lehar fully supports the struggle of the striking doctors and other employees. We denounce the anti-worker policy of the Rajasthan government.

Working class representatives from all over the country are gathering on 4th September, at a time when a titanic struggle is going on in our country. The struggle is between the majority of toiling and exploited people and a minority of exploiters. It is between the majority whose labour expands wealth and the minority who enjoy the fruits of wealth creation on the basis of their private property and positions of power.
