Class-4 employees of KP hospitals give 15-day deadline for health professional allowance
November 21, 2017

PESHAWAR, 21 November: The class-4 employees at the hospitals of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have given a deadline of 15 days to the provincial government to accept their demand of health professional allowance.

Addressing a press conference at Peshawar Press Club on Monday, class-4 employees provincial president Nabi Amin and other representatives said that after the expiry of the delaine, they will stop performing their duties and start protests in front of the Chief Minister House and the residence of the PTI chief Imran Khan. They said the allowance has been given to doctors, nurses and other paramedical staff, while class-4 employees have been left out. They said they ended their protest for health professional allowance last year on the assurance of Finance Minister Muzaffar Syed, but he did not fulfil his promise and still he is using delaying tactics.

They said Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak has given health professional allowance to all government hospitals in Nowshera, while provincial minister Mushtaq Ghani has given this alliance to class-4 employees at Ayub Medical Complex Abbottabad. They said it is a matter of grave concern that the class-4 employees of the rest of the province have been kept deprived of this allowance.
