Fazilka, December 4

Resentment is brewing among medical officers and paramedical employees who were hired on a contract basis during the pandemic by the government in Fazilka over unpaid salaries.

The employees staged a protest outside the office of the DC and blocked the Fazilka-Ferozepur highway demanding release of their salaries. Sources said the administration had deployed medical staff of 60 persons, including eight medical officers under the National Health Mission. Their salaries were to be paid from the SDRF. The government owed Rs 53 lakh on account of their salaries. Dr Devashish Watts said the employees were deployed at Maa Sarasvati College Covid Care Centre at Abohar between May 11 and October 5 and their services were terminated without any notice. An official at the DC office said the salaries would be released soon. — OC
