When the private hospital nurses in Kerala agitated, the Kerala LDF government issued orders increasing the wages in private hospitals from Rs. 7,000 to Rs.20,000, despite protests from the private managements.
At the same time, the BJP Government in Chhattisgarh has put 607 nurses who were agitating for better wages and service conditions in jail.
This is the difference between a Left Democratic Government and a BJP government. We demand the Chhattisgarh government to negotiate with the unions and release the arrested nurses.
