The junior doctors at the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) continued their agitation and abstained from duties and staged a demonstration in front of RIMS on Sunday too demanding recognition for RIMS from the Medical Council of India.

The medicos took out a procession on the arterial Trunk Road demanding justice. They poured out their woes to Prakasam district Collector V. Vinay Chand at the latter's camp office.

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu should use his good offices with the Centre to get the MCI recognition for the RIMS, pleaded the medicos who had completed their house surgeon's course and waiting to get the permanent registration.

NEET-PG eligibility

The temporary registration given to them would lapse in the absence of the MCI recognition for RIMS, feared the medicos who had decided to intensify their stir from Monday as they would be ineligible for appearing for NEET-PG without a permanent registration. They would not be able go for a job either in the absence of a permanent recognition from the MCI, Junior Doctors’ Association president B. Sriharsha said. ''We will have no option but to refuse emergency cases which they are attending to now if the government turns a deaf ear to their pleas,'' he said.
