The union says that many of the dedicated employees rely only on wages and fail to reach the basic necessities of their families. They asked the government to look into the matter immediately and consider it an urgent issue.
This is not the first protest from the Mid Day Meals Scheme Workers Union. They even participated in a protest ‘ Chalo Hyderabad’ campaign with over 1000 workers. Earlier for their salary settlements, many workers from different places in the state have come to Hyderabad and protested. Now they are protesting for the same old reason, which has not been fulfilled yet. Today’s protest by the Union has grabbed public attention.
