Gangtok, 06 Feb:

In continuation of indefinite pen down strike on a single-point demand of regularisation, contractual employees of National Health Mission, Sikkim State AIDS Control Society and Ayush of Sikkim staged a dharna here at the Health Department head-office today.

They also staged a sit-in in front of the office of the Commissioner/ Secretary of Health Department with their demand.

After speaking with the employees on dharna, the Secretary along with other senior officials of Health Department went to the Department of Personnel to find out how far the concerned file had been processed.

Speaking to media persons, the contractual employees on dharna stated that the movement will be continued until they will get the regularisation order in their hands.

“We have a single demand, that of regularisation and we will not comprise on this. We just want that the department to regularise us like it has absorbed doctors and nurses hired under similar provisions as us,” they said.
