Jharkhand doctors went on a day-long strike today in protest against the new leave system introduced by the state government under which the village-heads would be the granting authority.
Around 2,000 government doctors took part in the strike. “We have launched phase-wise agitation to protest the new leave system introduced by the state government. If the state government does not withdraw the new leave system, we will further step up our agitation,” said Jharkhand Health Service Association president Bimlesh.
Besides doctors, teachers in Jharkhand are also against the new leave system.
