The government agreed to withdraw its decision to impose dies non on those who participated in the strike, the association said.Announcing the withdrawal of the strike, which started on July 21, the KGMOA said the decision to call off the strike was taken in the wake of fruitful discussions between the government and the association.

The dies non declared for the strike would be withdrawn with retrospective effect, said KGMOA state president Dr E P Mohanan.
