CM KCR instructed doctors to join the duties immediately:
Following the call for strike by the Junior Doctors Association, the Chief Minister conducted a review with the medical officers at the KCR Pragati Bhavan. Speaking on the occasion, CM KCR said that it was not good for Corona to call for a strike in dire circumstances. At such a crucial time, the CM KCR instructed the junior doctors to join the duties immediately keeping in view the public health. He said the government had never discriminated against junior doctors and would continue to address their problems. CM KCR made it clear that the government is ready to address the legitimate aspirations even now.
If there are any problems .. the government should bring them to the attention and solve them but .. he said that the strike should not cause trouble to the people. He said boycotting duties in the name of strike without even looking at the timing was not the right approach. Also, he said Telangana people would not be happy with such a decision by doctors in an emergency like Corona. Meanwhile, the CM inquired about the problems of junior doctors. While the officials explained the problems of Judas to the CM, the CM ordered them to be resolved immediately.
The CM KCR has decided to increase the honorarium given to senior residents by 15 percent. The CM also decided to provide an honorarium to senior residents who have completed three years of medical education and are continuing for covid services. In the context of Corona serving, junior doctors and their family members want to better provide the medical services already provided in NIMS. CM KCR directed the officers to provide the ex gratia as per their wish as soon as possible as the government is already providing ex gratia as per the regulations.
The review meeting was attended by Chief Secretary to Government Somesh Kumar, CM Secretary, CMVO Covid Special Officer Rajasekhar Reddy, Health Secretary SAM Rizvi, DME Ramesh Reddy, Director of Health Srinivasa Rao, CM OSD Gangadhar, and others.
