    Junior doctors in the state of Telangana are preparing to go on strike due to unresolved issues with the government. The doctors have already protested by wearing black badges and have threatened to boycott emergency duties starting on April 11. Their demands include clean hostel accommodations, security, and food facilities for PG students in the District Residency Programme (DRP). They are also requesting an increase in stipend as per the National Medical Council notification. The doctors have given the government an ultimatum to address their concerns or face a strike. Dr Kaushik Kumar Pinjarala, who is leading the junior doctors, has submitted a representation to the Director of Medical Education K Ramesh Reddy outlining their demands. Despite assurances from the Health Secretary that accommodations and food would be provided, district hospital superintendents have denied the request. The State government has agreed to increase stipends by 15% once every two years, but the doctors are still waiting for their stipends to be credited on time and for an increase in their pay. The junior doctors have demanded that their pending stipends for February and March be cleared by April 10. If their demands are not met, they will boycott their services, excluding emergencies, starting on April 11. Dr Kaushik has criticized the government for asking junior doctors to serve the State without providing adequate support.
