Sweepers of CIDCO area sit for hours at Aurangabad Municipal Corporation for salary

Aurangabad: Around 5300 sweepers have been employed under Self Help Groups to collect garbage in CIDCO area. These workers have not received salary for three months. Because of this, these cleaners stayed at the municipal headquarters for about three to four hours. But still these employees did not get any specific assurance due to the lack of any responsible official including the administrator at the municipal headquarters.

The municipal administration privatized the city’s garbage collection and management and the garbage collection was given to the Gopinath Reddy Company. However, garbage collection in CIDCO is done only through 13 self-help groups. A total of 327 employees of CIDCO are engaged in garbage collection under these self-help groups. Salaries of employees who have stomach in hand are stopped from time to time by Municipal Corporations and Self Help Groups. Salaries for the three months of May, June and July have not yet been paid. As a result, they are in financial crisis. Famine has descended on their family.
