Visakhapatnam: Contract paramedical employees staged a dharna under the banner of 'Maha Vedukolu' at the District Medical and Health Officer (DMHO) office here on Monday, demanding regularisation of their services as announced in the election manifesto of the YSRCP.
As a part of their protest, the joint action committee (JAC) members and employees staged a demonstration holding banners and raising slogans.
