Over 350 resident doctors went on strike since October 7 due to lack of security in the hospital premises.Dr Pradeep Kaswan, President of Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctor (MARD), Nagpur Government Medical College, said, “Our primary demand was to get security guards for our safety due to which we went on strike. After meeting with the DMER authority Dr Pravin hingare on Thursday, they have agreed to meet our demand. Over 180 security guards have been deployed at the hospital.”Speaking about the termination letter given to 350 doctors by the hospital administration, Dr Pradeep, said, “The hospital has now issued a joining letter to all the resident doctors and we have joined back the duty.
