Increasing Honorarium:Anganwari workers and Helpers stage protest

Srinagar, Mar 15, : Anganwari workers and Helpers affiliated with Centre of Indian Trade Union Friday held a protest demonstration in Srinagar demanding increase in their honorarium.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

  The protesters assembled in Partap Park and raised slogans against the government for not fulfilling their demands which are pending from a very long period of time. They protesters expressed dismay over allegedly given no heed by the authorities.

The protesters demanded their honorarium to be increased amid not less than rupees 20,000 per month, besides job security and other benefits.

“Our honorarium must be with immediate effect like the rest of states,” said President Mehbooba Shaheen.

Vice President Lateefa Ganai said, “We are more than 60000 workers and helpers in the state working in the different Anganwadi centres in Jammu and Kashmir”.

Moreover she added that “All the workers and helpers are facing financial problems as they too have to support their families”.

In the recent past our honorarium was increased by Governor and the former Social Welfare Minister Sajad Lone that was however meagre.

The protesters threatened of launching an agitation till their demands are met. (CNS)
