GUWAHATI: The 'All Assam NHM (National Health Mission) Para-Medical Employees Union' has urged the Government of Assam to also include them in the list of Health personnel who would be getting employment in the government sector.
Addressing the media at the Guwahati Press Club here on Sunday, the organisation's general secretary, Mofidul Islam said, "We urge the government to include all our 21,000 contractual employees in the list of the 1,00,000 candidates who be getting government jobs soon." He added, "Our members should get the permanent appointment as they have been working at the same level for the last 10 to 15 years. Incidentally, we have been making this demand several times earlier.
"Prior to the Assembly elections in 2016, we got a positive indication that the jobs of the NHM personnel in Assam will be regularized along with those of the contractual TET (Teachers Eligibility Tests- cleared) teachers. We, therefore, look forward to the decision of the authorities concerned in this regard.
