Delhi government nurses begin strike against AAP administration

New Delhi: Demanding regularisation of pay and pending promotions, nurses of several hospitals run by the Delhi government have begun a strike on Wednesday.

The Delhi Nurses Federation (DNF) said it is a "symbolic strike" that will be held from 9-11 am from November 2-4.

"However, emergency and ICU services won't be affected as nominal staff will work for these two services. OPD services and wards will be impacted due to the nursing staff's strike that began today," DNF secretary general Liladhar Ramchandani said. He said all major city government-run hospitals have joined the call given by the DNF.

So, has LNJP Hospital, GB Pant Hospital, DDU Hospital, GTB Hospital, BSA Hospital, Dr Hedgewar hospital, and SGM Hospital, among other hospitals in Delhi, he said.

Ramchandani said there were 8,000 sanctioned posts, but 6,000 nurses are working.

"Three new hospitals have come up and the staff from the other government hospitals has been diverted there. There has been an addition of beds, but no addition to nursing staff," he claimed.

The DNF had recently carried out a march to the Delhi secretariat to press for their demands, including regularisation of services, promotions that are long due and the creation of new posts.

"The Arvind Kejriwal government's health secretary and health minister are not serious about the problems of nurses. That is why there will be a symbolic strike," the DNF had tweeted on Tuesday. "We apologise for the inconvenience and difficulty that patients will have to face during the strike," it said.
