Kolkata: The agitating doctors said they were open for talks with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to end strike. But, the venue for meeting will be decided later.
This was decided after the joint forum of junior doctors held a press conference in this connection.
The spokesperson said: “We are open for dialogue always. If the chief minister extends one hand we will extend 10 of ours. We are eagerly waiting to break the deadlock”.
It may be recalled the agitating doctors had earlier rejected Mamata’s invite for a closed-door meeting at the state secretariat.
The agitating doctors said they would wait for their governing body to decide on the proposed venue for the meeting.
The agitating doctors also accused Mamata of not making an honest effort on her part to break the deadlock.
Banerjee at a press conference at the state secretariat yesterday said she had urged the agitating doctors to resume work.
“We have the laws, but we do not want to use them as we do not want to hamper their career,” Mamata said at the press conference.
