OUR STAFF REPORTER RAHIM YAR KHAN - The Young Nursing Association on Thursday announced an end to protests by nurses across the Punjab province after acceptance of their demands. We are successful. The Punjab government has accepted our demands after 28 years. It has issued a notification, wherein it has promised to resolve all our problems till December 25. Thats why, we have stopped our protest, YNA Rahim Yar Khan President Musarat Naz told the media. We are thankful to the media for highlighting our issue. She said that the nurses were following instructions of YNA Punjab President Rozina, adding that they were united across the province. Musarat said that the YNA was working for the rights of nurses including of government hospitals at Khanpur, Liaqatpur and Sadiqabad. She said that raise in salaries was their genuine demand and due to inflation it was not possible for them to live on the old pay scales. Our scales are same like a ward boy but our working is tougher and more responsible. We demanded 9-scale for nursing staff and all other girls who are working as daily wages should be appointed as contractual or permanent workers. As many as 15 girls are working on ad-hoc basis at Sheikh Zayed Medical College Hospital. Vice President Yasmeen Kousar, General Sectary Huma and Information Sectary Ambreen Safdar were also present.
