SAMBA, Dec 15: Anganwadi Workers Welfare Association (AWWA) affiliated to Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) staged a strong Dharna protest in front of DC office Samba, protesting the Social Welfare Department’s order and harming the interests of Anganwadi workers and helpers. . .
The protesting workers and helpers have also strongly condemned the order of CDPO Vijaypur for terminating the services of around 120 Anganwadi workers and helpers without benefit. They strongly opposed the BJP government and the LG administration.
They are challenging the age limit of 60 years, imposing other unreasonable conditions like separating the Aganwadi worker/helper from their village if they have a family, also firing those hired from outside circles.
Addressing the workers, BMS President Harbans Choudhary condemned the over-enthusiasm of CDPO Vijaypur and issued a list / order to dismiss more than 120 workers and support workers without payment of pension dues and expected wages. According to him, the workers cannot leave the center until the payment is made.
Society president Swarna Choudhary is against the retirement/retrenchment of workers as Aganwadi workers and assistants are appointed as per ICDS scheme guidelines, which clearly mention workers up to 65 years of age and beyond if the government wants to retire workers. The government should then pay Rs 5 lakh to the Anganwadi workers and Rs 3 lakh to the helpers.
Ashok Choudhary Sangathan Mantri and Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh said Anganwadi workers/helpers have been working for a long time and J&K is the only state to pay only Rs 600 per month to helpers or PM 300 to workers since 2010. They are paying a total honorarium of Rs 5,100 per month to Anganwadi workers and Rs 2,550 to support workers. Neighboring states are paying state share ie Haryana Rs 8161, Delhi Rs 6750, Punjab Rs 3650, Himachal Pradesh Rs 4500, while Jammu and Kashmir is paying only Rs 600 and Rs 300 to workers/helpers.
Chief Secretaries Roshu Sharma and Neelam Sharma said no worker would leave the center unless the department provided genuine retirement benefits and waived pending wages/arrears.
