Bathinda, January 9

Citing non-payment of salaries for the past three months and non-fulfillment of their long-standing demand of regualrisation, members of the 108 Ambulance Employees’ Union went on an indefinite strike in Bathinda and Mansa.

As a result, patients and their attendants have been left at the mercy of private ambulance operators. Amandeep Singh, chief, 108 Ambulance Employees’ Union, said, “Neither have we received salaries for the past three months nor we have got increment in the past 10 years. Either the government should run 108 Ambulance service or must select a responsible firm. The incumbent operator is harassing us.” — TNS
