Gandhi Hospital doctors who went on a strike opposing the enhancement of the retirement age of medicine professors called off their strike this evening after successful discussions with Health Minister C Laxma Reddy.

The hospital's Assistant and Associate Professors launched a strike yesterday demanding that the government not increase the retirement age from 58 years to 60. The Health Minister today held discussions with the striking doctors and urged them to withdraw the strike as the government would reconsider its decision. He assured the doctors that he would discuss the issue with Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and take a final decision again.

Satisfied with the minister's assurance, the doctors withdrew their strike.

Speaking on the occasion, the doctors said that they had full faith in the state government, and so were withdrawing their strike and resuming duties forthwith.

They however also made it clear that they would go on strike again if the government failed to honour its word.
