NPCC puts weigh behind aggrieved nurses
Dimapur, Nov. 23 (EMN): The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has supported the demand of COVID-19 aggrieved nurses (DRAN) saying they have not only responded to society’s need but proven their valour by sacrificing themselves at the frontline.
An NPCC’s statement issued by its president, K Therie, stated that Nagaland was most successful in taking care of COVID-19 patients. He has credited the doctors, nurses and medical personnel for successfully combating the pandemic. Therie added that they deserve appreciation and not humiliation.
“We are not the only the ones living on earth. The world is looking at the merciless attitude of the people’s government of Nagaland. Such act from a people’s government is shameful. The decision to throw them out is outrage,” Therie said.
“Permanent posts were created and advertisements made. Zoom interviews were conducted and appointments given online without giving a chance to the nurses to react. They were immediately deployed in the COVID hospitals in the height of the pandemic. After the pandemic, this heartless government has decided to throw them out,” Therie alleged.
While acknowledging that they were appointed against posts created in an emergency time of need, Therie felt that there should be no question of doubting their skill or capability after having used their services in the most difficult of times.
“Not only have they responded to society’s need, but have also proven their valour by sacrificing themselves at the frontline. Nagaland was most successful in taking care of COVID-19 patients. This success belongs especially to nurses, doctors and medical staff,” Therie added.
In the light of the above stated circumstances, Therie felt that they deserve appreciation and not humiliation.
