Kerala Livestock Development Board To Promote Milk And Meat Production

Trivandrum: Kerala Livestock Development Board (KLD) organized a National workshop on “New Initiatives on Milk and Meat Production by Conservation and Propagation of Indigenous Breeds of Animals” on January 23, 2012 at Mascot Hotel.

The workshop aims at sharing the experiences of the KLD Board in conservation of milch breeds like Gir, Sahiwal, Kankrej, Vechur, dual Purpose breeds like Malabari and Attapady Black breeds of goats, Meat purpose breeds like Angamaly pigs and other indigenous breeds with stake holders across the country to gain experience from them.

“I am very happy on the “Innovative Initiatives of KLD board for the conservation and propagation of native breeds of Livestock “in the country. Government of India is very liberal in sanctioning conservation projects to KLD Board. We have already sanctioned Conservation projects of Malabari goat, Attappady Black Goat, and Angamali Pigs and happy to note that Board has implemented the projects very successfully and NABCONS have evaluated the conservation projects and reported to Government of India that implementation of these conservation projects are excellent,” said Professor K V Thomas, Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution in his inaugural address.


Govt to ensure free service roads chief minister Mr Oommen Chandy on Monday said the government would ensure 80-km-long free service roads before allowing toll collection on the widened Angamaly-Mannuthy stretch of National Highway 47.

Addressing the first meeting of the monitoring committee constituted on the works related to the widening of the NH stretch, the chief minister said all promises would be met by the government before the toll.

Mr Chandy said the Cabinet would take a decision on when to start the toll collection. It would also look into the complaints that the toll rate was high compared to the cost.

Another contentious issue was the move of the private company to collect toll from Edapally-Angamaly stretch too though its widening was undertaken by the government. The CM said that the Cabinet would look into this issue as well.

A public protest had led to the suspension of toll collection at the Palliakkara toll plaza on the road about a month ago immediately after it was introduced.

Another attempt to introduce the toll from January 18 also did not succeed due to the protest. The monitoring committee was formed subsequently.


Strikes make male nurses castaways

KOCHI: The strike by nurses across the country for better pay and other benefits seem to have taken a toll on the prospects of male nurses. Blaming them for inciting agitations, the private hospital managements are now ticking off the names of male nurses from their employee list. The worst-affected are those working in cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata.

Many of them from Kerala have already returned home as they had signed bonds giving the management the right to sack them without notice. The situation is no different in the state where male nurses add up to 5% of the total nursing population. Recently a multi-specialty hospital in the state capital advertised in the media with a footnote forbidding the male nurses from applying for vacancies. Two major hospitals in Kochi too have given red card to male nurses.

According to S V Biju, programme chairperson of Trained Nurses Association of India, Kerala branch, since almost all hospitals outside the state insist on signing bonds, many male nurses have lost their jobs after the strikes began. "There is a general notion that male nurses are instrumental in precipitating strikes," he said.

The nationwide strike had also made ripples in the state. Nurses from hospitals in Kollam, Kochi, and Thrissur agitated against exploitation by hospital managements. Last week, the nurses of Little Flower Hospital in Angamaly too came out in protest against the management's move to deny employment after training.

Sobin Jose, a resident of Cherthala who lost his job in a private hospital in Delhi, has looking for employment in the state. But the hospitals in state too are not keen in hiring male nurses. "I tried many hospitals in Kochi, but all private institutions now prefer female nurses," said Sobin. He is now trying for a job with the Co-operative Medical College. "If I do not succeed in that, I will try a job abroad," he said.

Many male nurses who were waiting for a job offer after clearing their interviews are now getting rejection slips from the hospital managements. For nursing students who spend Rs 4-6 lakh for their BSc nursing courses, this is bad news. The only alternative for them is to seek job in the government sector.

Meanwhile, the hospital managements in the state have denied any such discrimination. "We have not taken any decision against employing male nurses. In our meetings many said that male nurses are behind the strikes," said Husain Koya Thangal, state general secretary of the Kerala Private Hospitals' Association. He said that hospitals cannot do without male nurses as their services are required mainly in post-operative wards.

Nurses strike at LF Hospital angamaly ends The ongoing agitation of nurses at the LF Super Specialty Hospital here came to an end when the hospital management and the United Nurses Association representing the striking nurses sorted out the issues in a conciliatory meeting held here on Wednesday.

The management reportedly agreed to allow four trainee nurses, who were asked to leave which led to the strike, to continue in service. But they would be transferred to the LF annexe in Koonammavu. The remaining issues will be sorted out later.The normal functioning of the hospital would resume on Thursday, said hospital director Fr Sebastian Vadakkumbadan

Strike in Little Flower Hospital at AngamalyManagement strangles nurses agitation, media remains silent witness

Even as the battle between the nurses deprived of dignity, security and fair wages and the power wielding management at the Angamaly Little Flower hospital rages on; hidden camera, abuse, threats, blackmail and negative propaganda are the weapons raised by the latter to strangle and stifle the agitation. In this fight between the oppressor and the oppressed the main stream media has made its stand clear. Bowing down under cooperate pressure the media has preferred to remain blind, deaf and dumb. Doolnews investigates further into the Angamaly nurses agitation.

The nurses protest against the Little flower hospital management at Angamaly that began on January 2,2012 has entered its ninth day and both sides continue to remain adamant, obdurate and stubborn on their views. Even as the logjam continues the administration has refused to yield to the strong agitation staged by the nurses. The demands of the nurses are simple. Their cry for job security, dignity, and provision of minimum wages continues to fall on deaf ears.

Reinstating the dismissed nurses, raising the minimum wage, removal of bonded labour, introduction of working in shifts and ensuring job security are some of the demands raised by the agitating nurses.

The management on the other hand relentlessly continues to leave no stone unturned to crush the protest. “The management has stooped to an all time low. In an alleged bid to blackmail the protesting lady nurses, a private photographer was sent to the lady’s hostel, to secretively click snaps of the nurses who had gone to change their clothes and perform ablutions. The camera man was gheraoed. Some of the protestors and natives managed to get hold of the photographer and destroy the film. A complaint has been filed against the accused for abuse and outraging the modesty and dignity of women before the police and the women’s commission,” said Mr Jasmine Shah, President United Nurses Union and Mr Binto, Little Flower Hospital Union Secretary.

Mr Binto told Doolnews, “The management made phone calls to the nursing students and staff’s homes and spoke ill of them. They even threatened their parents. All modes of subtle and obtuse modes of threats are being used to weaken the protest.”

“Notices are being published and circulated among the staff and the natives against the agitators. In every manner possible they have been trying to tarnish our image. Even emotional and mental torture is being implemented to break our spirit and weaken the movement. When ANM students attempted to join the protest they were threatened and so were we. The management issued notices on Saturday stating that the hostels shall be shut down. Thus accommodation and food shall be denied to the nurses. ,” he added.

The nurses have been receiving a paltry sum of Rupees 3500 of which 1100 is deducted as rent and mess charges. The nurses have asked the management to pay them the minimum wages set as per the 2009 government rules which amounts to 8500. However the management claims that they have been paying the nurses 10000 per month.

“ The management has been manipulating the salary certificates of the nurses. The salary is paid to them in an envelope after signing a register in which the details of payment is filled up according to the whims and fancies of the management”, said Jasmine Shah.

Though the protest began on January 2, 2012 till date there has been only two meetings between the management and the striking nurses. Both the meetings held at the District Labor Office (DLO) office failed as the two parties refused to see eye to eye. The agitators have demanded that the dismissed nurses be reinstated. The management however claims that they were willing to reinstate the nurses only after conducting an entrance exam. The protesting nurses believe that nurses that have more than one and half years of working experience need not go through an entrance exam. Thus the discussions have reached a dead end. The next meeting is scheduled to be held at Thiruvananthapuram today.

The protestors have expressed displeasure on the fact that the media has not been sensitive and enthusiastic in covering the issue. The main stream media continues to shy away from the issue. Though nursing is a large workforce in Kerala their voices remain unheard. “Our opponents are very strong and powerful. Most hospitals are owned and run by large cooperate organizations such as Reliance, or by community groups. The management of most hospitals has immense influence and manipulates the political heads as well as the media. Most MP’s and MLA’s have shares in these hospitals. Hospital’s owned by community groups also have great control over the politicians because of vote bank politics. They have strong bargaining power. The media is terrified. We have reasons to believe that the gatekeepers of the media refuse to give sufficient coverage to our cause because the media and the hospital management have a strong profit reeking cooperate relationship.”

Speaking about his experience while agitating at Muthoot hospital Mr Jasmine Shah said,”While agitating at Muthoot hospital several reporters covered the agitation but the news never reached the public. It was not a difficult task to kill the news. The Muthoot management picked up the phone called the concerned media and said ‘What do you want advertisement or news.’ The decision was made.” Muthoot is a major source of advertising revenue for most media firms. Thus yielding under cooperate pressure the main stream media betrayed the protestors.
