Ludhiana, June 11
Representatives of the Dayanand Medical College and Hospital Union and off-duty employees of the hospital today sat on a dharna in protest against an official of the building department who allegedly misbehaved with some women employees at the Gastroenteritis Ward here yesterday.

Mr Chander Mohan Kalia, president of the union, in a press note said unless the status of the Hero DMC Heart Institute was clarified, they would not allow the shifting of the ward. “The management has not taken any action against the official who forcibly pushed the staff nurses out of the ward. Even no FIR has been lodged and the police has not turned up for recording our statements”, alleged Mr Kalia.

He said the on-duty employees were performing their duties in the hospital so that the normal working of the hospital was not disrupted and the patients were not neglected despite confrontation between the management and the union.

Others who participated in the dharna included Ms Navraj Kaur, general secretary of the union, Ms Rajwant Randhawa, Mr Gurdip Singh and Mr Gurcharan Singh Khalsa.
