After the nurses union of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Tuesday began an indefinite strike due to suspension of union's president Harish Kajla, the institute has issued a notice to maintain peace and harmony in the campus.

Here's what the hospital administration stated in the notice:

No employee of staff or faculty member will cease work for any reason whatsoever or disrupt the work or kid or abet such disruption or cessation.

No use of loud speakers or shouting of slogans, demonstration, dharna within the campus.

No gate meetings or protest meetings of any kind whatsoever are to be held within the radius of 500 mtrs, from the boundary of the Institute.

No interference in any official work.

No resort to any disruptive activity.

All Trade Union activities will be carried outside the campus

Any violation will result into disciplinary and other actions.

For the unversed, nursing Officer Harish Kumar Kajla was suspended with immediate effect on Monday night in view of the April 22 incident of disrupting OT patient services.

The union is seeking immediate revocation of suspension of Kajla and stopping of all kinds of retaliative measures against union executives and union members of main OT.

"In response to your unilateral decision to suspend Harish Kajla, president of AIIMS Nurses Union, without even citing proper reasons, the union has called an emergency executive meeting and decided to go on indefinite strike from 8 a.m., 26/4/2022 demanding immediate revocation of suspension of Harish Kumar Kajla and stopping of all kinds of retaliative measures against union executives and Union members of main OT", said nurses union in a letter to AIIMS director Randeep Guleria.

In a statement, the union said: "The union has always been receptive and open to expressing our genuine concerns and version throughout this issue. But unfortunately, we were neither called, nor contacted via any communication which forced us to go on an indefinite strike to safeguard the basic rights of our members."

However, the AIIMS RDA said that the suspension of Kajla is an action taken against his misbehaviour and the use of abusive language against a resident doctor. "Whoever is diverting this matter for political gain , be aware that the RDA, AIIMS is going to fight for the self respect of residents always", said RDA AIIMS.
