Srinagar: Deputy commissioner Bandipora has asked the NHM employees, who are on strike for last several days, to join back to their duties with immediate effect or face action.
An official said that DC has asked the concerned CMO and BMOs of district Bandipora to convey NHM staff to report back to their duties.
NHM staff is on strike for past several days demanding regularization of their services and other benefits.
The strike of NHM staff has severely hit patient care across the district as most of the healthcare solely depends on NHM staff.
Deputy commissioner Bandipora, Dr. Shahid Iqbal Choudhary said that they have asked the NHM them to report back immediately.
“NHM is a central scheme and government of Jammu and Kashmir is actively considering demands of NHM staff as already done for ReTs. Contribution of NHM staff is immense. However, continuing strike despite government efforts and during a calamity is uncalled for, ” he said.
