Samba, May 18
Flaying the Health Department for its failure to pay salaries to the Female Multi Purpose Health Workers (FMPHW) for the last around one year, Yash Paul Kundal State President Young Panthers today joined the protest of the said employees and sat on day long dharna along with them in the premises of DC Office Samba. Supporting the cause of the agitating female Heath Deptt employees, Kundal called upon the concerned authorities to release their salaries or be prepared for shutdown of medical services all across the District Samba.
Addressing the participants, Yash Paul Kundal rebuked the authorities concerned for their callous approach towards the employee’s class. He said that there was huge resentment amongst the employee’s class as a whole against the state government apathy and indifference towards their genuine concerns. He said that while the government had failed to implement the recommendations of 7th pay commission in the state, the employees of Health Deptt more particularly the FMPHWs were deprived of the benefits of even the sixth pay commission.
