Bathinda, August 28

The hunger strike of ASHA Worker and Facilitators' Uunion members entered the fifth day in Mansa district on Friday. The ASHA workers raised slogans against the Health Department and state government for not fulfilling their long-standing demands.

Seema Rani, a union leader said, "We demand that the government must pay us a fixed salary on the pattern of the Haryana Government. Our demands are genuine and we appeal to the MLAs of our area to take up the matter with the state government. We have been instrumental in making government's 'Mission Fateh' campaign successful. ASHA workers and facilitators have not only been working on the frontline, but also reaching out to people at far-off areas. — TNS
