Pakistan: Ad hoc nurses continue protest for 7th day

LAHORE, (The News): The ad hoc nurses on Monday continued their sit-in for the seventh day in front of the Punjab Assembly on The Mall to press the Punjab government and Health Department to regularise their services.


Bowing to the pressure of protesting ad hoc nurses due to their continuous strikes, the Punjab government on Sunday announced to give three-year contract letters to the ad hoc nurses with the commitment to regularise them after three years.

created a wedge among the striking nurses as some of them parted ways Punjab government offers of three years contracts to ad hoc nurses with the nursing fraternity by accepting the three-year contract letters with the commitment to regularize them on completion of contracts.


However, a sizeable number of the ad hoc nurses unwilling to accept the government assurances still continuing their sit-in until their services are regularized and made permanent.
