Say won’t call off protests until demands met
Srinagar, Sep 21: On the fourth consecutive day, the Anganwadi workers Thursday continued to register their protest against the government for failing to increase their monthly honorarium at par with the rest of the states.
The Anganwadi workers assembled at Srinagar’s Press Enclave here and chanted slogans in favour of their demands.
The workers who held sit-in today were demanding government to increase their monthly honorarium upto Rs 14000 per month.
The protesters said that the government has miserably failed to look into the issues pertaining to the Anganwadi workers, who are working are serving the department on meagre amount.
They according to KNS correspondent said that the government has ignored the Anganwadi workers at all fronts. “We are serving the department with dedication and honesty but the government is turning their eye blind towards our plights,” they said, adding that the government should have increased the monthly honorarium of the workers upto Rs 14000 per month.

Protesters said that the government has assured them several times that their genuine demands will be fulfilled soon but unfortunately all the promises and assurances done with them proved hoax on the ground.
“Every successive regime has failed to fulfil its promises done with the Anganwadi workers,” they said, adding that the government should take immediate steps in this regard to put an immediate end to the sufferings of people.
They said that they will continue to protest against the government till the demands won’t met.
Earlier, on Wednesday, Police detained scores of Anganwadi workers at Srinagar’s Press Enclave.
The workers continued with the anti-government protest from Monday. (KNS)
