Burla: After a week-long disruption, health care services are back to normalcy at the Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (VIMSAR) here on Friday.
Junior doctors of VIMSAR, who called off their 5-day long strike on Thursday evening, resumed their duties in the hospital today.
Thousands of patients were seen at the outdoor this morning in the premier medical college and hospital in western Odisha.
Junior doctors’ decision to resume work was taken by the general body of the students’ union after a fruitful meeting with the Health Minister Pratap Jena in Bhubaneswar yesterday.
The PG students of the medical college and hospital had launched an indefinite cease-work agitation demanding the removal of VIMSAR’s Director Aswini Pujahari from his post.
As a stop-gap arrangement, the state government had ordered as many as 116 medical PG pass-outs to join duty in VIMSAR on a temporary basis.
