Asha Sathi workers protest layoffs; forcibly enter Kendrapara Collectorate

Kendrapara: Hundreds of Asha Sathi workers tried to forcibly enter the Kendrapara Collector’s office today protesting layoffs.

The agitating workers created ruckus at the office of the collector following which police help was sought to bring the situation under control.

“We are being dismissed from our jobs. We demand that the government should withdraw the decision,” said an agitating Asha Sathi, Sanjukta Rout.

Rout also warned to intensify the protest in case the State government doesn’t take any steps to withdraw the decision.
