Taking a strong exception to the misguided statements of the opposition parties on the issue of anganwadi workers, the Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal said that “Lal Rang Ki Badmashi” will not be allowed at all
Manohar Lal was speaking during the second day of ongoing Budget Session of Haryana Vidhan Sabha.
The Chief Minister at the same time, appealed the angwadi workers to join their work as several decisions have been taken in their interest which never saw the light of the day before in the tenure of previous regimes.
He said that State Government has categorised the anganwadi workers as skilled and semi-skilled besides enhancing the monthly wages of skilled anganwadi workers to Rs 11,429, highest in the country. The monthly wages of semi-skilled workers has been increased to Rs 10,286 and of helpers to Rs 5,715. With this, the anganwadi workers would be able to get all the benefits as admissible to skill and semi-skilled workers including Provident Fund (PF). The Government would also consider their demand of holidays during the service, he assured.
He said that a meeting was held with the representatives of three unions of anganwadi workers here which have welcomed these decisions.
He said that this scheme was started by Government of India in the year 2004-05 under which monthly wages of Rs 1000 were given to the volunteers for their assistance in the effective implementation of Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) schemes at the village level.
