Owing to the strike of the medical teachers and doctors for the past two days, over 3,000 elective surgeries couldn't be performed across state-run medical colleges on Tuesday.

Around 2,700 teachers withdrew from clinical work while the doctors boycotted patient care for the first time on Monday after dharnas and hunger strikes for the past 49 days failed to get the government’s attention.
