NEW DELHI: Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan has expressed concern over the low wages of ‘anganwadi’ workers and demanded that they be raised to the level of minimum salary existing in the states where they are employed.
Paswan noted that a large number of these workers come from poor economic background and many of them were from scheduled castes and tribes, a statement said.
Their present wages are nearly Rs 3,000, which is very low, he said.
They should be given the minimum salary fixed in the state where they render their services, Paswan said. (AGENCIES)
