Anganwadi workers stage stir

They exhibited poor quality of wheat rava being supplied to Anganwadi centres.
They urged the Additional DC Madan G Nayak to solve the problem at the earliest. “Instead of nutritious food being supplied, a kind of powder is being distributed to the pregnant woman and children. None of them like to consume the food,” they said.

The pension scheme for the Anganwadi workers and assistants should be implemented. Retirement benefits should be given to all those who have retired after 60 years, they appealed.

Federation District President S L Radha Sundaresh said “Rs 670 crore worth tender has been invited for the supply of food to Anganwadi. Of which, Rs 300 crore has been misappropriated.”
