Manjit Singh strongly condemns brutal lathicharge on NHM employees
Seeks regularization of their services

JAMMU: Apni Party Provincial President Jammu and Former Minister, Manjit Singh has condemned the brutal lathi charge on the peacefully protesting NHM employees in Jammu.
He was addressing a delegation of NHM employees who called on the Provincial President Jammu at Apni Party office in Gandhi Nagar to express their gratitude towards the immediate support to them which was extended by the Apni Party’s Youth Wing and Legal Cell for handling legal issues.
While interacting with them, Manjit Singh said that the police have acted in a very unprofessional manner and the Govt is sleeping over the issue with no positive move from them towards the redressal of the issues.
He said that the disengagement of the NHM employees after utilizing their services at the crucial times has affected thousands of other daily wagers who were expecting their regularization.
“The anti-employees decisions of the Govt and its Departments have alienated the people. These NHM worked during covid19 when no one was ready to serve but their disengagement shows non-serious approach of the Govt towards their dedication and hardwork,” he said.
He said that these NHM employees should have been regularized under a policy by the Govt as a welfare state. However, the human approach is missing in the bureaucratic rule; he added and condemned the lathicharge on the NHM employees that has left many protesters wounded.
The State General Secretary, Youth Wing, Abhay Bakaya said that “It was unfortunate that the NHM employees were engaged on minimum wages and then disengaged after fulfilling the tasks given to them. The Govt has acted in a very insensitive manner which is beyond understanding.”
He said that the demands for continuation of NHM employee’s services in the health department are genuine and the Govt must accept them.
Meanwhile, the Youth Wing Coordinator, Sunny Kant Chib also condemned the lathicharge on the peaceful protesters and demanded a probe in the matter from the authorities.
Besides, Provincial President, Youth Wing, Vipul Bali also extended support to the NHM employees and said that the Youth Wing members will continue their unconditional support to the genuine demands of the NHM employees.
