HYDERABAD: Some hundred odd senior residents working at King Koti Hospital have not been paid their stipends from February 2021. A dozen of them are now suffering from Covid 19 and not able to report to work.
A senior resident on condition of anonymity says, "How are we to work? What is the motivation? We are seeking our stipend that has not been paid. Many of us are now suffering from the disease and need to take help from family."
