NRHM EMPLOYEES HOLD STRIKE
LUDHIANA: The National Rural Health Mission ( NRHM) employees from Ludhiana, Sangroor and Faridkot districts held a strike at Jagraon bridge here on Thursday.
NRHM president Lakhveer Singh from Sangrur said: "We have been working on a contract basis for a long time but the government never listens to us. Every time we protest against the government, it promises to fulfill our demands but later it turns a deaf ear."
He said: "The major problem that we are facing is that the state government is not taking our demands seriously. It is not giving us the salary that is issued by the central government. We want to get permanent now. The government does not have any strong reason of not giving us the salary issued by the central government."
