Cuttack: A day after the Head of the Urology Department of SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack, Dr Duteswar Hota was transferred; the agitating junior doctors of the medical college called off their cease-work stir today.
President of the association of junior doctors, Rajesh Kumar Sahoo informed mediapersons about the decision that was taken at the general council meeting. The junior doctors were on a cease-stir for the past 9 days demanding suspension of Hota accusing him of metal & physical harassment.
Meanwhile, the Odisha Medical Teachers' Association (OMTA) condemned the transfer of Hota and urged the State government to reconsider its decision.
OMTA president Bipin Bihari Pradhan said the transfer decision is one-sided and an inquiry should be carried out.
Accusing Hota of torturing them mentally and physically, the junior doctors had resorted to cease-work agitation demanding his suspension. Extending their support to the strike, the house surgeons and senior resident doctors of the leading medical college had also taken leave en masse.
