Doctors on Strike at LN Hospital in Delhi
The Delhi government's Lok Nayak Hospital is struggling to deal with emergency services after resident doctors went on a strike.

The resident doctors of Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) are calling for better infrastructure and basic life-support equipment and decided to call the strike after relatives of patients assaulted doctors.

"We are working with bare minimum facilities. The hospital does not have life-savings drugs, ambu bags for artificial respiration and other basic drugs. This is the result of a total administrative failure and the inefficiency has cost many lives," said Dr Kuldeep Kumar, president, resident doctors' association (RDA).

Dr Swaraj Batra, Medical Superintendent of the hospital, met with the Health Secretary and reassured doctors that they would increase the security facilities. However resident doctors are not reassured saying that their demands are always agreed to on paper, but nothing ever gets done.
