CPI (Maoist) AOBSZC Extends Full Support To Anganwadi Workers Strike In Andhra Pradesh

Visakhapatnam District, December 18, 2023: The CPI (Maoist) Andhra-Odisha Border Special Zonal Committee (AOBSZC) on Monday informed that their committee will extend full support to Anganwadi workers across Andhra Pradesh state and their ongoing protests against the government for failing to address their list of 19 key demands.

The committee secretary, Comrade Ganesh, in a release on Monday, said that Anganwadi workers should continue their protests until the government addressed their demands.

Comrade Ganesh said that the YSR Congress Party had promised to create 2.65 lakh jobs and increase salaries of Anganwadi workers. But, after coming to power, the party forgot all the poll promises, he said.

“Around 1.06 lakh Anganwadi workers, including their helpers, are doing their work in every village in the State with very low salaries. They submitted a memorandum to the government before calling for the State-wide bandh from December 8. The government did not address their demands. We appeal to the public leaders and communities to support the Anganwadi workers,” Comrade Ganesh said in a statement.
