The Nagari Nikaay Janwadi Safai Kaamgar Sangh affiliated to AICCTU organized a protest in Bhilai on 17 September 2017 against the hypocritical ‘honouring’ of 200 sanitation workers on Modi’s birthday. The speakers at the protest meeting said that the BJP talks of honouring sanitation workers on the one hand, but on the other hand they are not bothered to give the workers minimum wages, salary slips, timely payment and other essentials. Rigging and scams are done in PF and ESI. Safety rules and regulations are openly flouted.
