SGPGI nurses demand cadre restructuring
LUCKNOW : Nurses of the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) demonstrated in front the office of PGI director on Thursday, demanding cadre restructuring and appointments on permanent basis. President of PGI Nursing Association Seema Shukla along with a number of nurses barged into the office of the director where he was holding a meeting with the finance officer.
The association alleged that the director had been ignoring their demands for months.
“SGPGIMS has highly qualified nurses required for various departments, but the institute still outsources them from outside,” she alleged. PGI director Prof Rakesh Kapoor said that his term was ending in November. Therefore, his administrative powers had been seized and he was not in a position to take any administrative decision. The matter would be sorted out by the new director.
Meanwhile, Seema alleged that present director was performing all other administrative works regularly, but had put on hold only the nurses’ works.
