MP Health News: 19 thousand contractual health workers and 2500 support staff on indefinite strike
Bhopal (Navdunia Representative). Contract health workers and support staff have gone on indefinite strike since Monday. Asha activists and collaborators are also on a day’s strike. It is bound to have a negative impact on health services. There are 19 thousand health workers and 2500 support staff in the state. The number of ASHA workers and collaborators is in lakhs. All these are services under corona control. Dr. Sunil Yadav of Contractual Health Workers Association alleges that the government is not giving 90 percent salary to regular posts to contractual health workers as per their own policy. Compassionate does not give appointments, they are not taking back those who have been fired. Support staff staff union president Komal Singh alleges that 2500 support staff continued to work on the contract for 12 years, picking them up and subjecting them to an outsourced agency. Where exploitation is taking place. AT Padmanabhan of the Central Office of Indian Trade Union alleged that the entire work of control of corona is being done by Asha and Sahyogini, who should pay 30 and 20 thousand rupees per month to the government but are being exploited. Demand is unheard of, so filing a protest has become a compulsion.
