The junior doctors of Osmania General Hospital in Telangana's Hyderabad, who went on an indefinite strike on Wednesday, have threatened to boycott emergency duties from Saturday if the old building is not reopened or a temporary facility for surgery is not set up.

As a protest, 120 postgraduate doctors held a mock surgery on an effigy on Friday.

The heritage building, which houses close to 350 in-patients, 2 operation theatres, and 8 wards, was vacated and locked after rainwater entered the premises of the Osmania hospital following a sewage pipe blockage in July.

The junior doctors say they are facing difficulties in performing surgeries due to a lack of healthcare facilities.

Demanding that the old building be reopened or a temporary facility for surgeries is set up, Osmania General Hospital's junior doctors have been boycotting OPD, elective surgeries and ward duties indefinitely until their demands are met.

In a strike notice, the doctors said, "Our issue regarding operation theatres, wards, fully equipped ASC and post-operative wards have still not been solved in spite of repeated representations."
