Chief Minister would hold discussions with representatives of nurses associations and private hospital managements on July 20, an official release said here today.

The nurses under the United Nurses Association had yesterday postponed their state-wide indefinite strike planned from today following intervention to July 19.

Members of the outfit said that the decision in this regard was taken at their state committee meeting after the intervention of the Chief Minister's Office.

The strike call was given by United Nurses Association demanding minimum wages of Rs 20,000 as fixed by the Supreme

Meanwhile, alleged that state instead of settling the nurses issue was trying to suppress their agitation.

National executive member V Muraleedharan said in a statement that government had acted in favour of private hospital managements and denied the reasonable wages to nurses.

'Directing nurses to join duty by threatening to impose ESMA was anti-working class', Muraleedharan said.
