A protesting leader said there are about 890 nursing officials and they would boycott work if the AIIMS management does not accept their demands by December 5.

“We have been urging the institute management to implement the central rules in granting leaves, appointing more staff in the critical care departments and promotion of the eligible staff. The institute authorities should look into our legitimate demands for smooth functioning,” said another leader.

AIIMS spokesperson Dr Tarun Goyal said the medical superintendent and director have heard the grievances raised by the nursing staff and the institute management is working to resolve the matter as per rules.
