MP govt issues hostel eviction notices to junior doctors

Bhopal, June 6 (TIWN) In a stand-off with the agitating junior doctors, the Madhya Pradesh government has hardened its stance after accepting mass resignations by the doctors, served eviction notices to them and asked to vacate their hostels and deposit the bond amount.

On Saturday, the state government sent eviction notices to the doctors, who had resigned in protest following the HC order on Thursday, to vacate their hostels.  "Our peaceful protest will continue. They have asked us to vacate the government hostel in Bhopal, and also pay bond fees (which runs into several lakh rupees". When they can serve us eviction notices, why not release a written order increasing our stipend," Madhya Pradesh Junior Doctors Association (JUDA) secretary Ankita Tripathi told PTI.  She said JUDA functionaries had tried to resolve the issue by seeking an appointment with Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.  While Tripathi said there was no plan as of now to approach the Supreme Court against the MP HC order, some others said it was an option.
