Chhattisgarh School Midday Meal Cook Association raising demand for fulfilling the promises made by state government during the state assembly elections will hold a day-long demonstration on January 15 at Budhapara protest venue in capital city Raipur.
According to Cook Association Kondagaon district president Sagram Markam, all the cooks across the state will be participating in protest in their respective work place. He said there has been hike in prices of essential commodities but even then the honorarium given to them is just Rs 1200 per month. This is inadequate for an individual and a family.
He added that showing consideration for children they are continuing the work with dedication. Now several political parties are approaching it to back its demands but association has decided to fight for the rights of its own rejecting the offer from outsiders to take up their cause.
Markam appealed that no one should fall in the trap of political parties, instead they should fight for their own rights. Association state president Ramraj Kashyap said all district association office bearers and workers will participate in the agitation in large number.
