IMPHAL, Jan 11 : Disgruntled security personnel of JNIMS Hospital working under Eastern Security Services (ESS) caused a huge commotion at JNIMS Hospital Gate today over non-payment of their salary for a period of one year.
Security personnel Leishangthem Chanchan Kumari stated that they had not received their salary since January 2021. Appeals had been made to the previous and present Director of JNIMS Hospital as well as the Medical Superintendent, she added. However, these appeals had fallen on deaf ears despite assurances given by these officials for prompt payment of their wages, Leishangthem Chanchan Kumari informed.
However, in the midst of all this, a tender had been floated to employ a new batch of security personnel and the result for the same is expected to be announced soon, she continued.
As such, these security personnel are not hopeful about receiving their wages, she said, and continued that these unfortunate circumstances had cast a doubt on their future as security personnel of the hospital.
Leishangthem Chahchan Kumari appealed to the State Govt, Director of JNIMS Hospital and authorities concerned to look into the matter and resolve the issue at the earliest.
