Kathua: A group of women on Wednesday sat on a dharna in front of Kathua chief medical officer (CMO)'s office protesting the irregularities in the appointment of health workers under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) in the district.

The protesters raised slogans against the health administration and pressed for an immediate filling of the vacant posts, failing which they have threatened to go for a hunger-strike from tomorrow.

"We will go on a hunger strike if the administration does not appoint the multipurpose health workers. They quashed the list last year following accusations of malpractice in the appointments. But since then they have not filled the 15 vacant positions," claimed one of the protesting women.
