Demand for a hike in their wages
On the information late in the evening, the PRO of the Chief Minister reached to hold talks with the Anganwadi workers. He has assured talks with the Chief Minister before the upcoming cabinet. Anganwadi workers remained calm late in the evening on assurances but warned that if positive action is not taken on their other demands including wage hike, they would boycott work from November 1.
District President Jyotika Pandey said that the government repeatedly says that we have different organizations. So now we are all united and fighting for our rights. We are being given an honorarium of seven and a half thousand rupees. Which is insufficient in today's time. Now only five hundred rupees increment has come to the fore, which is an insult to us.
Cabinet Minister Rekha Arya had assured us that in the next cabinet we will propose to increase the honorarium, but it was not kept. Today, the PRO of the Chief Minister has talked about meeting the Chief Minister before the next cabinet. In this, he will talk to two representatives of all Anganwadi organizations. Now we are waiting for the conversation.
