Ganderbal, May 22: Anganwadi workers and helpers strike in Ganderbal entered its 101th day on Tuesday as they continue to demand increase of honorarium, regularization of service and release of pending honorarium.
One of the Anganwadi helper said, “We have to work very hard to run Anganwadi centers but the government pays us a meager salary of 1800 rupees.”
