HYDERABAD: The state of affairs with respect to Safai Karmacharis in Telangana is pitiable and no schemes are being implemented for them.This was revealed by Dilip Hathibed, member of National Commission for Safai Karamcharis, the government body that monitors the status and well being of the safai karamcharis in the country.
The commission, which is conducting a ground survey across the country and has visited four districts in Telangana, has found that the state of affairs of safai karamcharis are pitiable. “We came to Telangana on June 14 and visited Khammam, Karimnagar, Warangal and now Hyderabad. It is sad to share that even three years after the formation of Telangana, nothing is being implemented for safai karamcharis,” pointed Dilip.
As per his findings, hardly any of the welfare schemes allotted by the state or the Central government are being implemented in the state. “There is lack of awareness among the community members about rehabilitation schemes, availability of pre-metric scholarships for children funded by the Union government, minimum wages etc. We have informed officials to ensure that the community is made aware of these,” added Hathibed.A meeting was held with Hyderabad collector and other officials in the city on Monday.
