Seeking regularization and other policies, the protesting workers said that the government has defeated the purpose of the Anganwadi workers by not implementing the regularization, salary and other policies.

The protesting workers also complained that workers had not received grants from a long time and the lack of the grants is directly impacting their families.

The protest demonstration was going on when this report was filed.
