Cuttack, Apr 6: Tension ran high on the SCB Medical College and Hospital premises as “expelled” staff nurses and pharmacists sat on a dharna in front of Superintendent’s office in protest against “illegal” action taken against them.
According to the protesting health workers, the SCB MCH authorities have expelled them from their job illegally even as they were engaged in Covid 19-related work for over a year. They include 201 staff nurses and 50 pharmacists.
They were first engaged in March for a term of three months. Then their services were renewed for a year. However, they were driven away before completion of a year, the protestors alleged.
