The female multi-purpose health workers said that despite being the permanent employees of the union territory they have to come on roads for their salary.
Education of our children gets affected since they are not able to pay their fees regularly, they said, adding, despite putting in best efforts during the COVID pandemic but still then we have to beg for salaries.
Despite working hard, neither our DPCs are being considered in stipulated time nor salaries are being released on time, said a worker.
The claims on women empowerment and Beti Bachaw, Beti Padhaw are just proving to be hoax on ground as despite providing primary promotive and curative health care for almost all the national health programs, our salaries aren’t not being released on time, she said.
