The Anganwadi workers Thursday continued to register their protest for fourth day against the government for failing to increase their monthly honorarium and bringing it 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 a meager amount.
They said that the government has ignored the Anganwadi workers time and again.
“We are serving the department with dedication and honesty but the government is turning a blind eye 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 fulfill 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 the people.
They said that they will continue to protest against the government till the demands won’t be met with.
Earlier, on Wednesday, Police detained scores of Anganwadi workers at Srinagar’s Press Enclave.
