Regularisation of contract nurses sought

MLC Kota Srinivas Poojary said a protest would be organised in front of Health Minister’s office at Suvarna Soudha in Belgaum demanding regularisation of service and minimum wages to nurses  appointed on contract basis in Health and Family Welfare Department on June 26.

Briefing reporters, he said nurses are not paid minimum wages of Rs 17,650 since three years, who are working since 13 years in the department. They are paid only Rs 4,575.  

He demanded that the minister should issue the direction for payment of pending wages and also decide over regularisation of service  of nurses within one week. He said if the minister fails to respond to demands, protest  rally would be held on June 26.

The sand mining problem in the district has stopped construction works in the district. The construction of nearly 12,000 to 15,000  houses are stopped. Poojary said a 16 member committee is formed  to look into issuing of licences to sand mining in State. He said 18 sand  blocks have been identified.

The committee set up has directed not to take up sand mining works in these blocks. He said the district has failed to send any proposal demanding revision of order issued by the committee. He said the Deputy Commissioner should initiate action concerning sand mining activities immediately.

Poojary demanded the government should provide compensation package to the family of murder victim Akshatha Devadiga. He said BJP Backward Morcha would take up protest before Deputy Commissioner office at Koppal demanding CBI probe into the suspicious death case of student Yellalinga in Koppal on June 24, he added.
