GOSSAIGAON, Nov 2: The mid-day meal workers engaged in
various schools staged a dharna in support of various
demands in front of BEEO office, Gossaigaon on Thursday.
The dharna organised under the aegis of Gossaigaon Block
Committee of All Assam Mid-Day Meal Workers Union raised
several demands before the concerned authority and said
that the demands were legitimate and that they were given
wages in lieu of honorarium.
They further demanded Rs 3 lakh to those who have lost
their jobs among others.
Bharati Ray, president, Gossaigaon Block Committee while
participating in the dharna expressed dissatisfaction and
anger against the government and said that they were
working as cooks with great difficulty but the government
neither had any time nor understood their pain and suffering
to resolve their demands.
She further said that if the government didn’t mitigate the
long pending issues of the mid-day meal workers before the
upcoming Lok Sabha Election 2023 then the workers
threatened to launch vigorous movement in the days to
come.
