Karnataka Private Doctors strike called off

Private doctors in Karnataka have called off their protests against amendments in the KPME or Karnataka Private Medical Establishments Bill following a meeting with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in the north Karnataka town of Belagavi where the legislature session is on.

Dr Sudarshan Ballal of the Manipal Group of Hospitals, told NDTV, “We are hopeful that our concerns will be addressed and we have called off the protest.” The protest had crippled health services in private hospitals and nursing homes.
