Bathinda, March 13

A delegation of the All Punjab Anganwadi Workers’ Union met District Programme Officer, Department of Social Security and Development of Women and Children, Amarjit Singh at the District Administrative Complex here on Wednesday.

Members of the delegation discussed their demands, including regularisation of their services and hike in the salary, with the District Programme Officer.

Hargobind Kaur, president of the union, said, “Anganwadi centres have been facing a shortage of ration for the past eight months. Anganwadi workers and helpers are getting their salaries on time. We have been demanding regularisation of our services for a long time, but nothing has been done. We have also demanded an increase in our salaries, but to no avail.”

The District Programme Officer assured them that the ration would be provided in two weeks.

Regarding the salaries, the officer said he had sought a budget for their salaries and as soon as the funds were received, the salaries would be paid.
