Delhi's Safdarjung medicos go on hunger strike

     Over 500 junior doctors, including postgraduate students, interns and junior residents of Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital went on a mass hunger strike on Tuesday to protest against the 'lack of basic services'. They also threatened to boycott Out Patient Department (OPD) services. A meeting between the junior doctors and the hospital administration on Monday ended inconclusively. The medical superintendent even threatened to rusticate junior doctors. The students had staged a protest this April by blocking the Ring Road opposite the hospital. The administration had then promised that their issues would be resolved, but refused to give a deadline.
