Anti-Quota Stir: Stalemate Continues; Fast Enters 10th Day

New Delhi: Despite Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's appeal, the stalemate between government and protesting medicos over quota issue continued as the doctors persisted with their hunger strike for the tenth day today.

'As of now there is status quo and we will continue our strike as government has not agreed to setting up a committee of experts to review the reservation policy,' Dr Vinod Patro, President of the AIIMS Resident Doctors Association told PTI.

The striking doctors are holding a General Body Meeting to chalk out their future strategy.

Government has so far not taken any action towards evicting the Resident Doctors from their hostels. Resident doctors of AIIMS, Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) and Lady Harding Hospital have been issued notices to vacate their hostels.

Meanwhile, hospital services continued to be affected and only outdoor patients are being examined and prescribed medicines, while no fresh admissions are taking place unless there is an emergency, a doctor at LNJP hospital said.

No surgeries are being carried out, he said. OPD services in AIIMS and RML are running but number of patients being attended to is less.
