He further said in this hour when whole world is fighting against COVID-19 and to cater shortage of doctor’s administration is hiring services of retired medicos to meet the emergency in the J&K (UT) and on the other hand quashing engagement of paramedics under SRO 24 is not justified and termed it as unpleasant and injustice.Dr Sharma further said that in order to fight the deadly Coronavirus disease, we need to have a strong and vigorous healthcare system and adequate manpower and on the contrary administration is issuing orders of disengaging of paramedics staff when the healthcare system in J&K is already running on crutches, thus directly put the lives of people at stake. Dr Sharma has strongly requested the LG to personally intervene and order revocation of such termination orders and further said that instead of disengaging the para-medical staff, the Governor led administration should regularize all the casual, seasonal, ad-hoc, contractual, need-based and daily wagers and should provide all required and necessary PPE as per WHO standards to all medical staff deployed in different hospitals at the earliest as doctors are risking their lives.He also requested for supply of sufficient ventilators, COVD-19 test kits and one testing lab in each district and also requested for announcement of risk allowances to all those working in this hour of panedimic.
