Jaipur: Rajasthan high court has asked state government to take necessary action against striking doctors. The court opened despite Christmas holiday considering gravity of the matter.

The division bench headed by chief justice Pradeep Nandrajog said, “Doctors cannot go on strike. The government may take any action it deemed fit.”  

 

Earlier, the court had barred the government from arresting doctors who resumed their duties. However, when lawyers of the doctors pointed out that the government has been arresting doctors despite court orders, the court said, “The stay on arrest was for doctors to resume the work since they have not joined duty the government can take any action needed.”

The court said that public cannot be made to suffer for personal grievance of an individual.

The court reaction came in wake of argument by lawyers of the doctors that their clients have been transferred while replying to a question about leaders of striking doctors.
