2 years on, order regarding enhancement of state share remain unimplemented
BJP betrays Anganwari workers
8/7/2020 11:46:09 PM

JAMMU, Aug 7: The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP), which often claims to championing the cause of Jammu people, has betrayed the Angarwari workers for not doing much in implementing the order of enhancement of state share to their honorarium.
The order to enhance the honorarium was issued during BJP’s regime in association with the PDP in erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir State, however, more than two years have passed but the promise remained unfulfilled.
Sources told Early Times that BJP leaders had promised to the Anganwari workers to enhance state share and in this regard it got issued order no 215 of 2018 for enhancing state share of Rs 500 but it remained on papers only and left these marginalized Angarwari workers, who earn nominal income from their job in lurch.
They further said that whatever remuneration they are getting is only due to the center's share and as far as the state share is concerned, nothing substantiate is being given to them. Anganwari workers used to get Rs 3600 per month from center and later Rs 1500 were more increased from the center but the State used to give negligible share, they said.
The issue was raised a number of times before the previous governments and with the concerned department but their plights remained unaddressed. During the BJP-PDP government the Anganwari workers raised this issue with the BJP leaders, who assured that their demand of enhancement of state share will be increased and an order was issued in 2018 by the government but it could not be implemented and failed to increase share of just Rs 500.
The betrayal of the BJP movement created resentment among the Anganwari workers, which is the testimony of its failure to address their genuine plights.
They further said that in other states like Haryana, Anganwari workers are given Rs 12000 per month which consists of Rs 6000 central share but here in JK UT, they are not even given Rs 500 of State share. Concerned ICDS department also showed its helplessness due to paucity of funds, they added.
