Scores of junior grade nurses Sunday alleged that on the pretext of their regularization of services, lower clerical staff in Civil Secretariat are finding ways and means to exploit them. They said that the case of 53 migrant substitute junior grade/FMPHW nurses have been working for past 14 years in different associated hospitals in GMC Srinagar against a salary of Rs 2500 per month.
A delegation of junior grade nurses told CNS that after 14 years of tireless industry their regularization process is deliberately being put to hurdles and redtapism by the lower clerical staff in main branch of Health and Medical Education Department Civil Secretariat Srinagar.
“These officials are trying to take undue advantages of our helplessness. Either our files are being hidden or some minute queries are being raised for illegal gratifications as we do not meet their demands of lust and greed,” they alleged.
The candidates said that despite deserving regularization of services, they are being compelled to visit the office on daily basis. They appealed the Minister for Medical Education to look into the matter and save them from these ‘lusty’ clerics.
