NEIGRIHMS Director, DM Thappa on Tuesday said that the problem between the administration and the resident doctors, students of the cardiology department has been sorted out.

The HOD of the cardiology dept, Animesh Mishra, however, informed that after the meeting with Director of NEIGRIHMS, the stir by the resident doctors had been called off.

However the resident doctors have given 48 hours ultimatum to the director to give a written assurance of addressing their issues. They also warned that if their demands are not met within 72 hours, they will resume the stir again.

The resident doctors of NEIGRIHMS’ Cardiology department have been on strike for the past one week in protest against the alleged arbitrary use of administrative powers by the institution’s Director D.M. Thappa to accept their examination fees for the doctorate of medicine course and for onward submission to the North-Eastern Hill University.
