Secretary health Peechooho withholding salaries of 24000 lady health workers
HYDERABAD: Secretary Health Sindh Fazal Peechooho was withholding salaries of 24000 Lady Health Workers of the province since last 4 months. He was holding files of LHW which were prepared since few years back to regulate them in government service on orders of Supreme Court. This was stated by Haleema Leghari president and Shama Gulani general secretary of All Sindh Lady Health Workers and Employees Union while addressing news conference here Thursday. They said that after order of apex court all employees of National Program for Family Planning and Health Care were regularized and their documents verification from DHO office to provincial secretary took 6 months.3 more months were taken to finalize lists. After this process one proforma was sent to districts for basic data of every employee and their biometric. They said after this tiresome process another proforma was issued to be filled to be communicated from DHO, DC, DG Health to finance department and then to final destination that is Health Secretary ( who being brother in law of PPP chief Asif Zardari) is not only master of black and while of his department but whole system. But the thing that cannot be understood is that why Sindhi girls and women are being subject to desperation by withholding their salaries for last 4 months. They have made appeal to chief minister to order secretary health to issue the IDs to treasury so that they could receive their salaries outstanding for last 4 months. They also warned if they were not paid salaries they will be compelled to stage Dharna at Giddu chowk Hyderabad from 17 October.
