The strike of some 140 resident doctors of the Government Ayurvedic College in Nagpur entered its fifth day on Sunday, officials said.

Among their demands is that they too be given a hike of Rs 10,000 in stipends like the one provided to MBBS and dental resident doctors through a GR on September 2, one of the protesters said.

These doctors have been given COVID management duties in two government medical colleges, one private medical college, 22 UPHCs and six walk-in centres, officials said.

Maharashtra Ayurvedic Association of Resident Doctors president Sumit Marathe told PTI the state government had not given them any assurance on fulfilling demands as yet.

"We were left out from the stipend hike order. We have not got a stipend for the past four months. We are suffering academic loss due to COVID duties. Some 130 resident Ayurvedic doctors in Nanded joined the strike from Sunday evening, and 20 resident Ayurvedic doctors on strike since October 8 in Osmanabad have got notices," he claimed.
