Srinagar, Jan 27: State General Secretary JKPCC & Ex-MLA Bandipora Usman Majid has urged the Governor Administration to fullfill the genuine demands of National Health Mission(NHM) Employees, who are on strike since last so many days.
Usman said, The strike by NHM staff has affected the health services to a large extent with patients facing a lot of inconvenience in rural as well as urban areas. These employees are paid only one third of emoluments in comparison to their counterparts in the State which needs to be enhanced substantially keeping in view the nature of their duties. These employees are working on meager salaries for more than a decade and they don’t have any job security. Governor administration must fulfill the promises made with these employees and immediately formulate a policy for the regularization including doctors, paramedical and management staff working under NHM.
Usman said, that this sensitive issue must be the cause of concern for everybody and the people with the helm of affairs should not keep their eyes closed on this sensitive issue.
