Workers oppose privatisation of sanitation worksPosted: January 12, 2012
Expressing their strong opposition to the Tiruchi Corporation decision to privatise sanitation works in Central and Chathram bus stand and the Gandhi Market in the city, members of the Tiruchi District Rural Development and Local Administration Employees Association staged a protest in front of the corporation office on Wednesday.
Instead, the Corporation should recruit more sanitary workers. Vacancies caused by retirements and deaths of sanitary workers should also be filled up. Only by strengthening its workforce that the Corporation can ensure cleanliness in the city, they contended.
Comment : Reading the last para I laughed out loud. Only unions and govt officials will claim that by strengthening the govt workforce can we achieve success. It is beliefs like these have led Indians to believe in the nanny state.
