NRHM work­ers hold­ing a protest at Ja­graon bridge on Tues­day. LUDHIANA: The em­ploy­ees of the National Ru­ral Health Mis­sion ( NRHM) of Ludhiana and Ropar district protested at Ja­graon bridge on Tues­day against the non­ful­fil­ment of their de­mands by the govern­ment.

NRHM Em­ploy­ees' As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Di­nesh Gu­lati headed the protest. Gu­lati said: “ The ma­jor prob­lem is that the Pun­jab govern­ment is not giv­ing us the salary which is is­sued to us by the cen­tral govern­ment. We are work­ing on a con­tract ba­sis for the past three years and we want to be per­ma­nent now.”

Call­ing it a sheer in­jus­tice, Gu­lati said: “We are not paid enough money and the Pun­jab govern­ment is also not giv­ing us an ad­e­quate rea­son of not giv­ing us the same salary as is­sued by the cen­tral govern­ment.”

The NHRM em­ploy­ees are fight­ing for their ‘valid’ de­mands for a long time. “The govern­ment au­thor­i­ties are mak­ing fun of us as ev­ery time ei­ther they do not re­ply us or post­pone our de­mands. If they will not lis­ten to us this time, we will con­tinue our protest,” he said.

Gu­lati threat­ened of strength­en­ing the protest if their de­mands were not met by Septem­ber 30.

“We are work­ing for the past three years but not even a sin­gle ser­vice rule has been made in our favour,” Gu­lati added.
