“I and many others had been appointed to serve Covid patients in different medicals in the State. Even as we had appointed for three months, the Government employed us in the job for three months till corona situation came under control. Then the Government drove away us,” said Padhi.
Padhi said has started begging to meet his family’s day-to-day expenditure. “The Government has betrayed up. There is no option left for me. I have decided to live on alms,” said he.
Niladri Prasad Yadab, a shop owner, expressed unhappiness over the matter. “We have not seen people begging after being ousted from Government job for the last 40 years. The paramedic pharmacists risked their and their family members’ lives while serving Covid patients. The Covid situation came under control in the State due to their efforts. The Government should resettle,” said Yadab.
