UNSA comes out in support of General:OBC Employees Association
The members of the Uttarakhand Nurses Services Association (UNSA) have come out in support of the protesting members of Uttarakhand General-OBC Employees Association in their strike against reservations in promotions in the state. According to the nurses, for now they are providing just moral support but they will go on strike too if the situation is not resolved soon by the government.
On Wednesday, after a meeting held between the members of UNSA and General-OBC Employees Association, the nurses of UNSA decided to support the protest against the reservations in promotions. According to a statement issued by the UNSA, the nurses across the state will also display their opposition towards the reservations in promotion by participating in the ongoing protest. “We are giving our moral support to the protest of General-OBC Employees against the demand for reservation in promotion. Due to the hundreds of ill patients and the threat of Coronavirus, we cannot go on strike when lives of people are at stake. We hope that the State Government takes the right decision of considering everyone equal and approving promotions to only those who deserve it irrespective of their caste and community,” said general secretary of UNSA Kanti Rana. She further added that they do not want to risk the lives of patients across the State, however, if the government does not take the right decision, they will have to take stronger steps too.
Meanwhile, on the third day of their indefinite strike, the General-OBC Employees burned the State Government orders of stay in promotions stating that the orders are ineffective after the judgement passed by the Supreme Court.
