Following an assurance by Deputy Chief Minister OP Soni, who also holds the charge of Health Ministry, various unions of employees of the Health Department have agreed to withdraw strikes and demonstrations by employees. The Deputy CM thanked the associations for agreeing to resume seamless delivery of health services in the interest of patients.

“The ethics of medical profession seek putting needs of the sick and ailing before self-interest. I thank all associations that have agreed to the request by government and have promised withdrawal of strikes and halting of demonstrations/agitations. I assure them that the government will reciprocate their gesture in a positive manner,” said DCM

The Deputy CM said meetings were held with representatives of staff nurses, National Health Mission employees, auxiliary nurse midwives, Covid volunteers, ‘108’ ambulance drivers and PCS doctors at his camp office on Tuesday, in the presence of senior officers of the department. — TNS
