The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi on Tuesday imposed Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) on over 15,000 resident doctors who are on strike in the national capital.
The action was taken after the doctors refused to end their strike and report to work despite the Delhi government accepting all demands that they had.
The Delhi Government had earlier in the day given a deadline of 11 a.m. to all the resident doctors on strike to resume work with immediate effect.
On Monday, the resident doctors began an indefinite strike here demanding more rooms, cleaner environment, and better salaries and working hours.
The doctors’ association had given June 21 as the deadline to respond to their demands.
