The political scenario in the country at the centre as well as various states is agonizing. ‘Politics without principles’ has negated the dreams of our forefathers – freedom fighters – to make India a land of peace and plenty and the constitutional guarantee of equality, justice and fraternity.

Tamilnadu: Nurses in government health centers fight for permanency

Submitted by admin on Fri, 2016-02-05 09:24

Image removed.Over 1500 contract nurses working in government run health centers of Tamilnadu went on an indefinite hunger strike at DMS complex, Thenampet, Chennai starting on 29th of January, 2016. They are demanding regularization of their work. Earlier, both in September 2015 and November 2015, nurses had launched agitations around this same demand. Each time, the authorities, after promising to fulfil the demands of the nurses, have betrayed their promises.This is the background in which nurses have been forced to come from all over Tamilnadu to Chennai for yet another agitation.
