About 350 interns of Government Medical College and Indira Gandhi Government College will proceed on strike from Tuesday, in support of their long pending demands.
The step by interns is important in view of the decision by the Government to involve them in Covid19 duties.
The interns have been demanding parity in allowances with those in Mumbai and Pune. They have also demanded health insurance cover and implementation of quarantine period after Covid duty, as per the protocol.
A memorandum was submitted by the interns to Divisional Commissioner and District Collector. However nothing has been done on the demands so far.
