The MCDA had on Saturday threatened that its members of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) hospitals would take a collective casual leave if the arrears of the last three months were not released. He said that the Sangh had already given enough time to the concerned officials to resolve the issue and pay salaries, “but they did nothing to solve the problem and instead they did not appear to be affected by the pain of the doctors at all” . ” Also Read – Delhi Pollution: Air quality in Delhi in ‘very poor’ category, expected to improve on October 26

The organization recently issued a statement expressing solidarity with the resident doctors of the Hindurao Hospital and Kasturba Hospital, who were protesting for their unpaid salaries. Both the hospitals are run by NDMC. The MCDA had recently threatened an indefinite strike from October 19 but decided to postpone the strike decision in “public interest”. MCDA general secretary Maruti Sinha said that the Sangh had “unanimously decided to protest against our arrears of salary for the last three months” in an emergency general meeting on Saturday.

The MCDA said in a statement, “The first decision in the general body meeting was on Monday by all the senior doctors for mass casual leave. And if all the doctors, including the resident doctors, are not paid salary till Monday, then from Tuesday, the full strike by all senior doctors indefinitely. Apart from this, there was a threat to go on strike to focus on permanent solutions like handing over MCD health services to the Center. ”
