Nurses protest working at Maharashtra CM's home

New Delhi: Nurses in Mumbai's Cama hospital are up in arms after being forced to take care of Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan's ailing mother-in-law.

Nurses on Monday protested against being sent to the CM's official residence to care for his ailing relative.

Three nurses from Cama hospital are being deputed every day at the CM's home 'Varsha' since October 6.

The nurses have demanded that they should not be sent out of the hospital to anyone's residence.

The dean of the hospital has said that the arrangement was only temporary as a private nurse hired by the CM was on leave.

Kasturi Kadam , Joint Secretary, Maharashtra Nurses Federation, said, "We have requested that the patients should be treated at the hospital and not at the private residences. We have 100 nurses to take care."
