A section of the more than 2,000 healthcare workers, including doctors from three North Delhi Municipal Corporation-run hospitals – Hindu Rao (a former COVID-19 facility), Rajan Babu TB Hospital, and Kasturba Gandhi Hospital for Women – have started an indefinite hunger strike against non-payment of salaries since July. Amid the pandemic, five doctors – Dr Siddharth Taara, Dr Manish Chaudhary, Dr Nilchakra Sahu, Dr Mayur and Dr Tejas Chaudhary, all from Hindu Rao – have stopped eating and drinking water to press for regular payment of salaries at a fixed date by the municipal corporation. Other protesting doctors have said they would take turns to fast with these five.
