The strike launched by Anganwadi workers and helpers showed no signs of abating, with hundreds of workers staging an agitation at Dharna Chowk in the city on Friday threatening to intensify their protest if the government did not concede their demands.

One of the main demands of the protesters is that the government hike their salary to ₹26,000, besides regularisation of their services and provision of retirement benefits.

Leaders of Anganwadi Workers and Helpers Union and AP Pragathiseela Anganwadi Workers and Helpers Union and others participated in the dharna.
