Centre of Indian Trade Union (CITU) organised a demonstration on the busy Ram Charan Aggarwal Chowk, close to the Delhi Police headquarters at ITO.
"It was over five months ago that we sent the notice to the government saying that if our demands were not met, we would organise a two-day countrywide strike. The Prime Minister did not have time for us till now. It was only last week that the government noticed us, and even now they say they will look into our demands," A R Sindhu, General Secretary of Anganwadi Federation and member of CITU, said.
"There is a 100 per cent strike in all the defence unions and most of the banks, insurance and transport unions of Delhi are with us," Amarjeet Kaur, National Secretary of All India Trade Union Congress, said.
