Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Feb 9: Senior leader of Centre of  Indian Trade Union  (J&K CITU), Sham Prasad Kesar has expressed dismay over the process of disengagement of ASHA                          workers who have been deputed to undergo ANM training course.
In a press statement here  Kesar alleged that almost all the ASHA workers deputed to undergo the above mentioned training course belong to  extremely poor and landless class with no viable source of income. They can’t    even manage bus fare, not to talk of other facilities. After acquiring training course there is no possibility of getting jobs within a stipulated period of time, thus, they will   be pushed to hardships.
The CITU leader  demanded that a mechanism be  devised so that these ASHA workers are asked /ordered to perform the duty of ASHAs   at least on Sunday, Gazetted holidays and before and after training time on working   days so that they do not get deprived of the minimum earnings to run their domestic  lives in view of belonging to below poverty level background.
