Members of Karnataka Rajya Anganwadi Naukara Sangha, on Monday staged a protest in front of the Town Hall on 15th February 2016 and called their protest as ANGANWADI NAUKARARA BRUHUT PRATHIBHATANE. The agenda of this strike mainly is that the workers who get appointed be compensated with Rs 50,000/- and Rs 30,000/- to the workers and helpers respectively. Anganwadi workers get Rs. 5,500 per month as pay, of which Rs. 3,000 comes from the Centre and the rest from the State government hence they want the government to compensate their salary. Previously there were many strikes organized by them the last year but not all their needs were met. Hence they have come down to the streets to put forth their demands to the government. The protesters demanded that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah should listen to their woes. The protesters comprised of women and children. The protest caused a lot of inconvenience to many commuters in the central part of the city. There was traffic havoc at the townhall signal. The traffic stood standstill for a very long time which created frustration among the general public. Police manually managed flow of traffic. The place in front of townhall was completely barricaded by the police to decrease the intervention in the flow of traffic. Hundreds of police personnel had been deployed for the purpose. It was only by afternoon that the traffic movement normalized.
