    Gives memorandum to the collector

    The Asha workers who have been risking their lives as warriors in the Corona epidemic for the last seven months, staged a protest at the Collectorate on Tuesday demanding Rs 350 per day. They said that it is difficult to make a living with Rs 33 per day they get now.

    Asha workers have been tasked with conducting door-to-door surveys in the Corona pandemic. More than 200 such workers are working regardless of their lives in danger during pandemic started in March.

     They are getting a allowance of only Rs 33 per day. The help of Asha workers is sought in other works also and don’t get paid for the much work they have been doing.

    The concerned department has been approached several times by Asha workers to increase their remuneration, but their is no solution to their queries. As a result, Asha workers led by Chandrikabahen Solanki, President of Mahila Shakti Cell, gathered at the collector’s office on Tuesday with their remuneration cheques. They handed over an application to the Collector with a demand for an increase in remuneration and also raised slogans in this regard.

    Asha workers said, allowance of Rs. 33 daily is not possible to conduct a Corona survey.  Chandrika Solanki, president of Mahila Shakti Cell, said Asha workers from Vadodara have been working as grassroots warriors since last March. There is no sure time about When the Coronavirus will end. Asha workers are risking their lives to conduct door-to-door surveys for Rs 33 a day.

    The survey work is physically and mentally painful and it is difficult to make a living at Rs 33 a day. The government says make the immune system strong but how immunity becomes strong at 33 rupees. They demand that the government give an allowance of Rs. 350 per day to Asha workers on moral grounds.  If their demand is not accepted by the government, Asha workers will not hesitate to stop operations including Corona in the coming days.
