Maha CM hires govt nurses, faces heat

Prithviraj Chavan
Mumbai, Oct 11: Government nurses launched three-hour strike on Monday, Oct 10, after Maharashtra chief minister called three government nurses in his house to look after his mother-in-law.

The nurses union said that he (Prithviraj Chavan) should hired private nurses for his mother-in-law.

The strike was withdrawn after hospital superintendent confirmed that they are not sending any more nurses, said Kamala Vaykole, union leader. He was quoted as saying, “We have written to CM ...Why should government nurses be sent to a minister"s residence? We oppose the move."

Dr T P Lahane, administrator of Cama was quoted as saying, nurses were sent "only for four days until Sunday as CM"s nurse was on leave and strike was “unnecessary and unethical".

Chavan was not aware that government nurses were sent to his house, said CM"s secretariat who issued a note. Chavan has refused to comment on the issue.
