    Junior doctors in Hyderabad are on an indefinite strike for the second day, causing some disruptions to outpatient services. They have vowed to continue striking until the government issues a General Order (GO).

    The doctors held protests at Osmania Medical College and Gandhi Medical College, chanting slogans and demanding the Chief Minister’s presence. Despite failed talks between the state government and the doctors on Monday, the strike continues with outpatient services and elective surgeries being boycotted, while emergency services continue.

    The Junior Doctors Association (JUDA) has put forth demands including timely stipend payments, improved security at hospitals, construction of a new building for Osmania Hospital, better roads at KMC, and payment of higher stipends to super specialty senior residents. They are also opposing the allocation of seats to Andhra Pradesh students in medical colleges.

    Hospital authorities have taken measures to mitigate the impact of the strike by calling in senior doctors and canceling leaves for other staff. Health Minister Damodar Rajanarsimha has engaged in discussions with the doctors, but they are insistent on written assurances for their demands.
