Black week against drugs: Anganwadi workers protest in Bathinda
Anganwadi workers on Monday morning protested against Punjab Chief Minster Captain Amarinder Singh in Bathinda, Punjab.
Anganwadi workers and helpers took out a protest rally against the increasing number of deaths in Punjab due to drug overdose. Hundreds of Anganwadi workers started their protest and raised slogans against the Captain led Punjab Government.
‘Nasheyan lae jimewaar -police parsashan te sarkar’, (Police, Government, administration is responsible for drugs supplied in Punjab) they said, raising slogans.
Some of the Anganwadi workers were accompanied by their children too during the protest.
Observing a ‘Black Week’ (July 1-7), people staged protests across the state against government inaction on drug menace.
The protest movement ‘Chittey De Virodh Vich Kaala Hafta’, with the tagline, Maro Jaan Virodh Karo (either die or speak against drugs) was started after a spate of drug related deaths were reported from across the state in June.
