The Uttar Pradesh Government has stopped the recruitment of contractual staff under National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) in all districts of the state with the immediate effect.
This decision was taken in the wake of a dispute between Minister of State for Revenue Vinod Kumar Singh and the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Gonda over recruitment of contractual staff under NRHM.
The state's Health and Family Welfare Minister, Ahmad Hasan, said all appointments have been stopped in all districts.
Earlier, the recruitment of doctors under NRHM had been suspended in Gonda only.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has ordered an inquiry into dispute between Minister Singh and the CMO of Gonda, and warned that strict action would be taken against the guilty after the report was received so that such disputes do not recur in future. (ANI with inputs)
