CITU leader bats for anganwadi workers

RAJAHMUNDRY: BJP’s policies have endangered the Constitution and democracy, said CITU national secretary Tapan Sen here on Sunday.
The veteran trade union leader was attending the inaugural session of the ninth All India Anganwadi Workers and Helpers which began in Rajahmundry on Sunday.
Speaking on the occasion, Sen said that the most of the people in the country were in disarray due to economic recession.
He expressed anguish at the sky-rocketing prices in the country. He added that the government was conspiring against the working class to keep them divided. He said that the Centre was trying to dilute ICDS and trying to hand over social security schemes to corporate sector in a phased manner.
He stressed the need for the working class to be united. He said that Anganwadi Mahasabhas should become platforms to motivate the people to guard against cheating by the governments. He demanded a minimum wage of Rs 21,000 for anganwadi workers, social security, regularisation and terming them on par with government employees.
CITU national secretary Tapan Sen said that the Modi government, while one side is talking about nationalism, on the other it was handing over the national wealth to private people
