Bhubaneswar: Union Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan today wrote to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik urging him to consider the demands of ‘108’ ambulance service staff including payment of wages and redressal of grievances related to job harassment.

In his letter, he stated that 108 ambulance employees basically want wages on a fixed date, overtime allowance, repair and up-gradation of ambulance vehicles and redressal of harassment complaints.

Pradhan’s move came after some staff of the ambulance services met him seeking his intervention into the issues.
