As the Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) plan to intensify their agitation to demand hike in honorarium, Health and Family Welfare Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh has again invited them for more talks.
In a letter to the Meghalaya Accredited Social Health Activist Workers Union (MASHAWU) today, Lyngdoh has set the date for November 22 to discuss on their demand on enhancement in their fixed honorarium from Rs 2,000 to Rs 5,000.
Health Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh has invited the Meghalaya Accredited Social Health Activist Workers Union (MASHAWU) on November 22 for a discussion on their demands.
ASHA workers had ceased work since November 6 and held peace rallies in the Khasi-Jaintia region against state government’s adamant attitude towards their demand for enhancing the fixed honorarium.
Recently, the ASHAs had decided to hold an indefinite strike opposite the Secretariat on November 27 to be participated by the executive committee of the union.
