NRHM Employees strike in Gujarat

On Monday the Gujarat's health department will witness one of the biggest crippling protests in recent decades where 45,000 employees engaged in the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) will strike work for a day.
The employees will go on mass casual leave demanding pay as per Sixth Pay Commission's recommendation. According to secretary of NRHM employees association Jayesh Macwan, "The issue of price rise affects the lower rung in the health department to a great extent. We demand that we be paid as against our work and our right as much as those who are drawing salaries under the pay panel's recommendation.
If we are a surplus and economically well to do state why not spare some money for the thousands of state employees who make this happen."
