AIIMS Functioning Normally - Very few doctors boycotting Duty


By and large, the OPDs functioned normally with only some doctors who want the present director to continue in office staying away from work. The AIIMS administration led by medical superintendent D K Sharma had, following the Supreme Court orders, asked the resident doctors to refrain from striking work.

"All OPDs are functioning normally. There is no problem at all. I am supervising the OPDs operations,'' Sharma said, adding ''a few doctors have boycotted (the OPDs).''

The strike was called by Resident Doctors Association when the AIIMS bill was passed in the Rajya Sabha amid wide protests from Opposition benches.

The bill seeks to restrict the age of the AIIMS director at 65 years. The move may pave the way for removal of Venugopal from the post. Dr.Venugopal was instrumental in organising the anti-reservation strike and paid the doctors even for their strike period. This is in sharp contrast to the "No Work No Pay" principle of Supreme Court
