New Delhi:  Doctors in government hospitals in Delhi will be on strike tomorrow demanding increase in their salaries and allowances.

They also threatened to go on an indefinite strike from June 1 if their demands are not fulfilled.

The Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA), an umbrella organisation of 15,000 resident doctors across 41 government hospitals in the national capital, has also written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to revise the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission which they termed
were "particularly discriminating to doctors".

"We will be on strike tomorrow for a day. If our demands are not fulfilled even after that, we will go on indefinite strike from June 1," said Dr Narayan Dabas, Convenor, FORDA.

Additional Secretary in the Health Ministry Arun Panda today held deliberations with Medical Superintendents of RML, Lady Hardinge and Safdarjung hospitals and later said "our hospitals have put in place contingency plans so that all emergencies, trauma cases are taken care of.

"Senior doctors will handle the situation tomorrow. We are still trying to make them (FORDA) see reason. RML has cancelled all leave. Senior doctors have been asked to come and attend patients. Hospitals think they can handle the situation. All trauma and emergency will be taken care of. The MS of RML, Lady Hardinge and Safdarjung have also talked with FORDA," Mr Panda told PTI.
