On Tuesday, more than 300 workers protested outside the Singrauli collector’s office and attacked the government. Anganwadi workers have been fighting for increasing their honorarium for a long time. There is no hearing from the government side. Angry workers have decided to observe a 6-day lockout strike from Monday.
Six day strike of Anganwadi workers
Anganwadi workers say that they were pleading for 11 point demands for a long time, but due to lack of hearing from the government, they had to take a decision to go on strike under compulsion. He has warned the government that if the demands are not accepted in 6 days, it will be forced to go on an indefinite strike. Anganwadi workers say that their monthly honorarium is 10 thousand. In the era of inflation, it is becoming difficult to run the house with less honorarium. Arrangements are not being made for the education of the children as well.
Government will be hit hard in assembly elections
In such a situation, there is an appeal to the government to increase the honorarium of the workers. Anganwadi workers have given an ultimatum that the government may have to bear the brunt in the upcoming assembly elections. Member of the organization Reshma Singh Chauhan said that the Anganwadi workers and helpers union has been demanding for a long time to declare them as government employees and provide all the facilities, but the government is not listening. Our demand is that 1500 rupees declared by the government should be paid along with the arrears, the state government should coordinate with the central government and amend the rules for the appointment process of Anganwadi workers, assistants and mini Anganwadi workers.
