Imphal, Oct 14: Nurses at Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) has strongly reacted to the appointment of one Laimayum Kullabati Devi as Nursing Counselor on deputation at the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, RIMS.
RIMS Nurses Association had earlier warned to revoke the appointment of the said lady as it violates the guidelines of the RIMS. Following failure to listen to the plea the Nurses of RIMS today staged protest demonstration in front of RIMPS OPD.
“We have decided to launch cease work strike from today but as there are patients who need our service we defer it and stage protest demonstration so that patients do not face hardship”, said a representative of RIMS Nurses’ Association.
As per report L. Kullabati was serving as Deputy Nursing Superintendent at a hospital call Kalawati Saran Children’s Hospital, New Delhi. She was recently appointed as Nursing counselor at Physical Medicine and Rehab Department, RIMS on deputation recently.
“ No such appointment has been made in the history of RIMS, and per the version of the Director of RIMS appointment even by creating a post is in violation of the rules and regulation of RIMS”, Priyadharshini Devi, Secretary of the RIMS Nurses’ Association said.
She further added that the association will continue the protest demonstration till October 17 and if the authority failed to revoke Kullabati’s appointment then the association will launch cease work strike.
Head of Department of Physical medicine and Rehabilitation Department Prof. Ak Joy had advocated the appointment of Kullabati as genuine saying that the appointment was done as according to the instruction from Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
Priyadharshini Devi however said that Prof AK Joy was not telling the truth as it has been found that the appointment was done on favoritism basis as it is now known that she was appointed on the ground that her husband works here in the state of Manipur.
If the RIMS Director fails to revoke the appointment in the lager interest of the RIMS and public by Oct. 17 the association will go cease work strike from the following day.
