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."
