2. And whereas, the Government, having engaged in discussions and fulfilling majority of the demands put forth by Anganwadi Workers and Anganwadi Helpers, and having issued an appeal to all Anganwadi Workers and Helpers, the Government, having exhausted all available avenues for resolution, is of the opinion that the ongoing indefinite strike initiated by the Anganwadi Workers and Anganwadi Helpers since 12.12.2023 is inflicting grave hardship and inconvenience to the marginalized, vulnerable and weaker section of pregnant women, lactating mothers, and tender children aged between 0 to 6 years across the State due to the non-fulfilment of the supplementary nutrition services.

3. And whereas, due to the ongoing strike, daily attendance of approximately 7.5 lakh pre-school children at Anganwadi Centres (AWCs) has significantly dropped to only two lakh children and there has been a notable absence of new registration, particularly of pregnant women and lactating mothers amounting to approximately 45,000 individuals per month. This situation is adversely affecting the essential services such as growth monitoring of malnourished children aged 0 to 6 years, immunization, health check-ups and referral services.

4. And since the health and wellbeing of the aforementioned pregnant women, lactating mothers and their children are entirely reliant on the services rendered by the Anganwadi workers and helpers at various Anganwadi Centres across the State.

The services of Anganwadi Workers and Anganwadi Helpers at all Anganwadi Centres, across the State.
