Marathi writer pitches for conservancy staff

Renowned Marathi writer Mohammad Khadse said that political will is required to resolve the apathy of the conservancy staff workers who clean the city’s waste.

“The authorities have always been reluctant in recognising the problems of conservancy staff, which belong to the lowest strata of urban life,” he said in a function where those working to improve the life of the staff were felicitated.

Though a few people were working for their lot, he said, “Merely being sensitive to the problem is not enough and everyone should work together to tackle the bigger problem.”

Khadse said there has been assurance but a political will is required to make it a reality.

Earlier, the English and Marathi versions of documentary Kachra Kondi were released.
