Anganwadi Workers Begin Ten-Day Mass Relay Hunger Strike


Thousands of anganwadi workers and  helpers from all over the country began a ten-day mass relay hunger strike in Delhi on July 25 at the Parliament street as part of their struggle to achieve their demands. Braving the inclement weather of Delhi, they spiritedly carried on their struggle at the time of going to press.


The hunger strike was inaugurated by CITU president M K Pandhe and prominent leaders of the CPI(M) including general secretary Prakash Karat, Kerala chief minister V S Achutanandan, CPI(M) Polit Bureau member B V Raghavulu and others greeted the workers and expressed solidarity with their struggle.


A detailed report on the struggle will be carried in these columns in the next issue. - Ed
