A large number of sanitation workers of Lions Company protested in support of their demands at the MC office today.

The Safai Karamchari Union, the Door to Door Union, the UT SS Federation, the SC Morcha- INTUC and All Contractual Karamchari Sangh supported the protest.

Rishi Dyal, president, Health Department Worker Union, said they were struggling for the past 10 days, but nobody was paying heed to their demands. Gurcharan Singh from the Health Department said sanitation workers were being exploited even though their demands are genuine.
