NO MORE MANUAL SCAVENGING
FROM DECADES, TO CLEAN HUMAN WASTE INSIDE DRAINS AND MANHOLES AND PITS, HUMAN LABOR HAS BEEN ASSISTED IN OUR COUNTRY. TO CARRY OUR EXCRETA, SLUDGE, USED SYRINGES, TOXIC GASES AND WHAT NOT THEY HAVE TO GO THROUGH FOR A MEAGRE AMOUNT OF BREAD AND BUTTER.
It is thought to be most prevalent in GUJARAT, MADHYA PRADESH, UTTAR PRADESH, and RAJASTHAN. Manual scavenging is a CASTE based occupation, with the vast majority of workers involved being women.
An estimate in 2018 put the number of "sanitation workers" in India at 5 million, and 50% of them being women.(WIKIPEDIA)
IT'S HIGH TIME, machines should be used for such disrespectful work and not humans.
our Constitution prohibits human scavenging under
The Employment of Manual Scavengers and Construction of Dry Latrines (Prohibition) Act, 1993
The Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act 2013 or M.S. Act 2013
still according to scoopwhoop unscripted (youtube), there are almost 7 lakh people still engaged or maybe more and those who go for cleaning manholes die withing 5 days.
HUMAN RIGHTS are for all.
This time a voice to eradicate manual scavenging 100% from INDIA and assure a Dignified life .
