Anganwadi workers staged a protest and burnt the effigy of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh near the Mini-Secretariat Ludhiana

  

Anganwadi workers staged a protest and burnt the effigy of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh near the Mini-Secretariat Ludhiana. Members of the Anganwadi Mulazam Union (Punjab), led by Subash Rani, alleged that the Centre had not considered any of their demand in the interim budget. More than 2,000 anganwadi workers shouted slogans against the Centre and the Punjab Government. They pressed a revision in the criteria for promotions from anganwadi helpers to workers. Subhash Rani, district president of the union, said: "As per the present promotion criteria for anganwadi employees, a helper is upgraded as worker after 10 years of service. We have demanded from the government to revise the criteria so a helper is promoted as worker after three years." The anganwadi workers have also demanded construction of more buildings at the anganwadi centres in the state.
