The Indian Army has moved in to support district and state administration of Jaisalmer by providing a team of doctors, nursing staff and other necessary personnel, including ambulance for the treatment of ailing people and overcome medical emergencies, the Army said.
"Medical team of the Indian Army from Konark Corps has treated more than 600 patients. The Indian Army stands ready to assist the public at times of emergencies and distress," an Army official said.
The medicos in the north-western state have been on an indefinite strike since November 6 over their demands.
