Ujjain: Madhya Pradesh Unorganized worker Congress committee’s State convention was organised at hotel Shanti Palace on Sunday. Issues like incorporation of unorganized sector workforce in the main stream economy, working for their welfare, and putting forward their demands to the Central Government, were discussed during the convention.

Former corporator Devvrat Yadav informed that senior state party member and 22 district presidents and city presidents participated in the programme. National vice president Irfan Alam was present as chief guest along with state in-charge Ajay Upadhyay and state president Ashutosh Bisen in the programme.

Party members alleged that around 225 lakh workers had been registered by the state government under the different schemes but only 5 lakh worker diaries had been issued till date. These registrations were nothing but just a sham to gain political opportunity, members raised concerns. Apart from that corruption surfaces everyday in implementation of MNREGA, PM Awas Yojana, and even in registration and issuance of diaries to unorganized sector workers.

During the convention party members took an oath to organize awareness campaignsto fight for the rights of these marginal section workers. City congress president Mahesh Soni, former president Anantnarayan Meena, Hafiz Qureshi, Ajit Singh Thakur and several other members were present in the convention. Devvrat Yadav conducted the programme and Sunil Gothwal proposed the vote of thanks.
