 Jharkhand Doctors and Teachers Threaten Resignation Over New Leave System

As per a new system, doctors and teachers posted in rural areas in Jharkhand will have to seek leave from 'mukhiyas' (village heads). Doctors in Jharkhand threatened mass resignation on Monday, October 26, 2015, if the state government did not withdraw this new leave system. A teachers' association has also announced that it will join the protest against the new leave system.

Bimlesh Singh, president of Jharkhand State Health Service Association (JHSA), said, "On Sunday, we met the principal secretary of the chief minister and apprised him about our concern. If the state government does not withdraw the decision, we will go on mass leave on November 2 and tender mass resignation on November 15."

The village mukhiyas have also been empowered to check their attendance. This new system has not gone down well with the doctors. More than 600 doctors under the JHSA took out a protest march on Sunday, October 25, 2015.

The agitating doctors were on their way to blockade the Jharkhand chief minister's residence but were stopped near the governor's house. The doctors then staged a sit-in near the governor's house. They lodged complaints against more than 200 doctors for engaging in a scuffle with police.

The doctors have received support from the Indian Medical Association (IMA). Bhati Kashyap, IMA women's wing president, said, "Why only doctors and teachers, civil servants and police officials should also be brought under the panchayat raj system."

The teachers association will launch a signature drive against the new system and hand over a memorandum to Chief Minister Raghubar Das. On November 15, 2015, they will protest before the chief minister.
