Dimapur, March 19: The Nagaland In-Service Doctors’ Association (NIDA) has resolved that its members will continue to wear black arm-bands as initiated on January 25, 2021, to register resentment towards the State Government for non-implementation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s package announced on 26th May 2016 at Saharanpur to enhance superannuation age of medical doctors in the country.
This was decided in a NIDA executive body emergency meeting held today with core committee members on Superannuation, informed NIDA president, Dr. E. Phyantsuthung in a press release.
NIDA claimed that following the PM’s announcement, most of the states in the country have already implemented the commitment.
The association stated that in view of the positive assurance received from the Minister, Health & Family Welfare Nagaland it has not escalated its agitation. A representation pertaining to the ongoing issue has also been submitted to the Chief Minister of Nagaland, it informed.
The NIDA emergency meeting resolved that further course of action will depend on the response of the State Government, said Dr E Phyantsuthung. (Page News Service)
