Resident doctors strike throws functioning of SKIMS-Soura out of gear, Government unmoved

Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, May 15: The people at helm seem to be least bothered about the hardships being faced by people as and when the medicos serving in the different health institutes go on strike in support of their demands.
The same is being witnessed over the past few days since the resident doctors working at Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Soura are on strike in support of their demands. The resident doctors are demanding a hike in their monthly remuneration.
The resident doctors want their remuneration to be brought at par with their counterparts at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) New Delhi. The Resident Doctors Association (RDA) has said that the strike would continue as long as their demands are not met by the hospital administration.
Ever since the strike of resident doctors the functioning of SKIMS has been badly hampered with the patients being ultimate sufferers. People reaching hospital from different parts of the state in order to receive treatment are dejected since the doctors are not available to treat them. Non-availability of resident doctors has put the entire system into quandary.
"Work in all the important sections of SKIMS has been badly affected and the worst part is that the state government is yet to come up to the expectations of the people especially the patients. No statement whatsoever has come from the people who matter in such a situation and this has led to resentment among the common masses," said sources.
Sources said that neither the health minister nor the minister of state for health have said anything with respect to the strike of resident doctors are SKIMS-Soura. They said that given this fact it seems that the problems being faced by people more so the patients don't figure anywhere with the higher ups of the government.
"SKIMS-Soura is visited by people not only from Kashmir but also from Jammu and Ladakh for treatment. Despite this importance the government higher ups and the SKIMS administration have so far taken no step to defuse the crisis that has come up following the strike of resident doctors," said sources.
In the meantime, the SKIMS authorities have decided to go for walk in interview for the posts of junior as well as senior resident doctors at the institute. The walk in interview would be conducted on three days starting from May 16. The interested candidates have been asked to bring in the testimonials at the time of walk in interview.
In a notification issued on May 14, 2018 it has been written that the walk in interview has been necessitated due to prevailing and unavoidable circumstances arising out of the strike of resident doctors at the institute. It has been said that the engagement of junior residency would be initially for six months and it may be extended by another six months.
The issuance of this notification is all set to lead to a controversy as there are chances that the doctors on strike may not allow fresh pass outs to appear in walk in interview. As such one cannot rule out commotion at the institute once the walk in interview process starts.
