Pharmacists seek regular jobs in Ludhiana

Rural pharmacists today burnt the copies of their diplomas. Their protest entered 11th day today.

Ludhiana: On the 11th day of their protest on Monday, rural pharmacists burnt copies of their diplomas outside the Ludhiana ADC office seeking regular jobs. For the past 14 years, they have been working on a contractual basis, the protesters rued.

Jot Ram, state president of the Rural Pharmacy Officers’ Association, said there was no value of their diplomas as even after working for 14 years, the government hadn’t recognised their worth and regularised their services.

“One of our pharmacy officers has contracted the infection while he was on duty. The pharmacists have served in isolation wards also. However, their plea for regularisation has fallen on deaf ears, leaving them with no other option, but to boycott Covid-related duties,” Jot Ram added. TNS
