The termination of services of nurses from Dr Rajendra Prasad Medical College and Hospital at Tanda was a disrespect to Covid warriors, said Prem Kaushal, spokesperson of the Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee, here today.

He said the nurses were outsourced and serving the institution in hope of regularisation of services. The nurses had served when the pandemic was at its peak, and now when the situation had improved, the college authorities terminated their services.

Kaushal said the college administration had turned insensitive towards the women staff that helped the government in tough time. Instead of encouraging and rewarding them for their service, the employees had been fired.

Kaushal urged the government to intervene into the matter and utilise the services of these trained nurses on rotation at makeshift Covid care centres established in Kangra district.
