Junior doctors in Jammu and Kashmir called off their strike

Junior doctors in Jammu and Kashmir agitating for the last 23 days in support of their demands, including pay revision, today called off their strike and agreed to resume duties from tomorrow after getting an assurance from the state government that it will resolve the issues raised by them by November 16.

The high level committee headed by State Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather held a meeting with the striking doctors here and agreed to resolve their problems by November 16, an official statement quoting the minister said here this evening.

Their issues were given due consideration during the several rounds of talks held with different organisations of doctors in both Srinagar and Jammu and it was mutually agreed that the strike be called off, Rather was quoted as saying.
