DESPITE protests and demonstrations, the Government failed to seriously pay heed to appointment of male nurses. Following the same, a delegation of Nursing Students’ Organisation India (NSOI) under leadership of President and Founder Gopal Parashar submitted a three-point memorandum to Collector Mahesh Chandra Choudhary on Tuesday. National Vice-President Pratap Singh Baghel informed that three-point memorandum comprising demands for appointment of male and female candidates of general nursing and midwifery in Government institutions.

Through the memorandum, they also demanded to ensure minimum salary of Rs 20,000 for nursing staff in private hospitals following rules of the Central Government and instructions of Apex Court and to ensure 10 to 4 per cent reservation for male candidates in appointment of staff nurse in Government hospitals. National Vice-President Baghel informed that neither the State Government has taken a serious note over appointment of male nurses nor instructions of Supreme Court are being followed. Administration of private hospitals are exploiting male and female nurses by paying them minimum salary of Rs 4000 to 5000. Despite several attempts to raise their voice in front of the State Government, no initiative has been taken to redress their problems.

If the State Government again tries to ignore their genuine demands, members of Nursing Students’ Organisation have warned to stage gherao of Vidhan Sabha during next session. Delegation comprised Ajay Patel, Kamal Mourya, Dharmendra Patel, Satendra Kaurav, Kapil Indrajeet and others.
