Sonipat news:The ongoing strike by the state’s rural sanitation workers demanding permanent employment, 16-point demands including equal pay for equal work and hiring of new employees has entered its 28th day. On Monday, union president Rajesh Rasoi chaired the meeting, followed by works secretary Rajesh Toki. The union was approached by Jaismer, Praveen, Sunil, Babli Devi, Rajesh Safiabad etc.

Union leaders said we were doing the most important and risky job of cleaning up dirt. In return, we don’t even receive a living wage. The government has made six stomachs in one pot by cutting the salaries of sanitation workers and giving them different names. Our work is the same, but the salary is not paid the same, and the salary is paid several months late. All our Teej festivals are celebrated as black people. We do not receive a Diwali bonus or gift every year. At every festival, we feel very upset when we see the disappointment in our children’s eyes. We are exploited in every way. The government sees us as nothing more than a vote bank and a dirt cleaning machine. In the end, a memorandum was submitted that provided for the payment of the outstanding two months’ salary and the extension of the strike until November 10th.
