Bengaluru: As many as 5,000 pourakarmikas (sanitation workers) from the 198 wards under the City Corporation went on a strike at Freedom Park on Friday July 1.

Karnataka Safaikarmachari Kaval Samithi Convenor K. V. Oblesh alleged that the sanitation workers were deprived of basic facilities like gloves, drinking water and toilets. He said if the workers are made permanent and draw fixed salary of Rs. 33,000 to Rs. 40,000 will benefit us. We will not return to work until our demands are met, he asserted.

At present the sanitation workers are employed on a contract basis. Not only the workers in the City have boycotted the work but the workers have gone on strike across the State.
