Rohtak: The students of 2018 and 2019 batches of MBBS course, who were protesting against the Haryana government’s bond policy at the PGIMS Rohtak, joined regular classes after writing to the director of the institute on Thursday.
The MBBS students have been on strike against the bond policy since November 1. While members of the Residents Doctor Association had joined their duties after the fourth round of talk with the government earlier this month, the MBBS students ended their strike on Thursday.
Pankaj Bittu, one of the students of the 2020 batch, said their protest would continue till the state government agreed to fulfil their demands and those who had joined classes on Thursday still ported the protest. “Our senior batch students joined Sup classes due to their examschedule and the NMC guidelines, but they still support the protest,” he said..
He said they were still waiting for the gazette notification on the amendments promised by the CM during the third round of talks with a delegation of the students.
“When the government releases the notification, only then the matter will be clear… whether our grievances are addressed or not. Till all our demands are not met, we will continue the strike,” he said.
Bittu also reiterated that MBBS students were ready to serve in government hospitals but the government wanted them to bear the burden of loans and EMIS.
Meanwhile, members of the District Bar Association Rohtak announced to suspend work for four hours on Friday to express solidarity with the protesting MBBS students.
