During the dharna, Theog MLA Rakesh Singha, CITU State President Vijendra Mehra and General Secretary Prem Gautam have said that if the workers are not reinstated, then CITU will intensify the fight for the restoration of these laborers by mobilizing the workers of the entire state. Under this movement, there will be mobilization of laborers at district and block headquarters. In this sequence Jail Bharo, Arrest, Chakka Jam, dharna-demonstration and rallies etc. are included.He has warned the State Government, NHM and Mad Swan Foundation Company management to continue the services of the workers as they are, otherwise there will be a statewide barricade against them. He accused the NHM management of colluding with the Mad Swan Foundation Company. He said that under the nose of the NHM company management, the old company GVK has left the work without giving legal benefits to the employees but they are silent. In this way the employees have been looted from all sides.Convenor of 108 and 102 Ambulance Contract Workers Union Manohar Lal and co-convener Praveen Kumar have alleged that more than 200 pilots, EMTs and Captains, who have been working for many years, have been unnecessarily fired from their jobs illegally. He said that this company is also following in the footsteps of former company GVK. Hundreds of laborers have been retrenched on the change of contract and in their place new appointments have been made on the basis of nepotism and recommendation. The state government and health department are silent on all this.
