Anganwadis: After a continuous protest lasting six weeks in Andhra Pradesh, the Anganwadi workers have decided to conclude their demonstration. The decision to end the protest followed a series of productive discussions with Botsa Sathyanarayana and Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy. Responding to the demands presented by the Anganwadi workers, the government has greenlit 10 out of the 13 requests. Notably, a pivotal commitment includes a salary increase scheduled for July this year, a promise officially documented by the government.
This marks a tranquil resolution to a tumultuous and persistent campaign lasting six weeks, during which the government resorted to implementing ESMA and even authorized the firing of protesting workers. Ultimately, Jagan opted against allowing an acrimonious protest, avoiding the potential repercussions of Bandhs in Andhra Pradesh right before the elections.

The Anganwadi workers have formally appealed to the government for compensation for the duration of their protest and the dismissal of any charges filed against them. The final decision on this matter will be made by Jagan in the near future.
The Anganwadi workers have temporarily halted their protests, opting to return to their routine duties. The decision to suspend the demonstrations allows them to focus on their regular responsibilities for the time being.
