Health Dept flayed for failure to reinstate sacked employees


Health Dept flayed for failure to reinstate sacked employees

Abohar, June 12

Members of non-government organisations (NGOs) led by Kisan Mazdoor Karamchari Talmel Samiti on Wednesday organised a protest against the Health Department and its contractor at the Civil Hospital here for not fulfilling the promises made after the death of a protester last year.

Buta Singh (64), a resident of Ratdian village in Muktsar, had died of cardiac arrest on September 25, 2018, during a protest organised against the outsourcing contractor of the Health Department for summarily terminating the services of four ad hoc employees.

The protesters assembled in Nehru Park and raised slogans against officials of the Health Department for allegedly shielding the contractor despite “poor services”. They took out a “Jhanda march” that passed through main roads and staged dharna at the main gate of the hospital later.

Samiti president Nopa Ram said the September 27 protest was lifted after the administration assured that the sacked employees would be reinstated, but it was not done.

The 100-bed hospital had been reduced to a centre to refer the victims of mishaps and other serious patients to other hospitals. The department had failed in curbing private practice by medical officers despite repeated complaints made in the past decade, he alleged.

The samiti demanded that sacked ad hoc staff be reinstated, failing which stir would be intensified.
