Himanta Biswa Sarma acts against striking employees in AMC

Dibrugarh: In a significant step, Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has ordered that wages should be deducted for the month of June for Grade IV employees who went on a strike on June 8, 9 and 10 as they were dissatisfied with the fact that some of the staff was put on duty in different sections of the medical college. The announcement by Sarma for deduction of wages comes at a time when the employees have again gone on a strike since Tuesday after police arrested two Grade IV employees of the medical college in connection with the mysterious theft of a baby from the hospital on June 27. Sarma has indicated that similar or even more stringent action action may be taken for the current strike as well.

Hospital authorities have welcomed the decision as they feel that the Grade IV employees have resorted to agitations for very whimsical reasons in the recent past.
It may be mentioned that the stolen baby who disappeared from the Maternity ward is yet to be traced
