Ampareen invites ASHA workers union for discussion

Health Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh has invited the Meghalaya Accredited Social Health Activist Workers Union (MASHAWU) on November 22 for a discussion on their demands.


In its letter to the Union, the department on Monday said,“…the minister incharge health and family welfare has called a meeting with the office functionaries of the MASHAWU on November 22 in her office chamber in connection with the cease from work by ASHA workers.”


The ASHA workers had decided to intensify their agitation by organizing a protest march to Secretariat on November 27, against the state government’s adamant attitude towards their demand for enhancing the fixed honorarium to Rs 5,000.


A peace rally was also held on Friday and participated by hundreds of ASHA workers.
