Earlier on December 25, Rajasthan High Court directed the state government to take action the striking doctors.

An agreement between the ARISDA and the state government was earlier signed following the strike in November, but that proved to be in vain.

ARISDA then announced they would go on strike from December 18 again. But, the state government invoked the Rajasthan Essential Services Maintenance Act (RESMA) to prevent doctors from going on strike. (ANI)
