Doctors are considered and are given the highest position when it comes to saving lives of the people suffering with ill health. But when this service came to a partial halt when the doctors of Haryana Civil Medical Services Association (HCMSA) in Haryana observed a two hour strike from September 11th, 2017. They were on a strike over their various unfulfilled demands that included, special package for specialists and allowances on par with their central government counterparts. As many as 1900 doctors participated in the strike that was observed even after the imposition of the Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) in the state, prohibiting any strike by the doctors for the next six months. The doctors planned this strike for two hours as an ultimatum to the state government to meet with their demands in the next 24 hours and if the demands were not met they would observe an OPD shutdown on September 13th, 2017 and observe a complete shutdown of all the services including emergency services from September 14th, 2017. After the state minister gave them an assurance on thinking about their demand and trying to fulfill it as soon as possible, the Haryana Civil Medical Services Association doctors withdrew their strike but the strike did affect the medical services of the state a lot.
