(UNI) Drawing attention to ‘sad state of affairs of domestic workers’ in the country, Congress on Sunday demanded that a central law be enacted for their protection and social security.
”Domestic Workers all across India will demonstrate before Parliament and their respective state and districts on December 10 to demand a Central Law to protect and promote their employment and social security,” said All India Unorganized Workers Congress (AIUWC) Chairman Arbind Singh while addressing reporters at AICC headquarters.

He said the AIUWC had launched a postcard campaign through domestic workers across India requesting Prime Minister Narendra Modi a Central Law for domestic Workers.
More than 20,000 post cards were sent to the Prime Minister from across the nation during the month of July 2018, he said.

The Domestic Workers of Delhi will gather at Jantar Mantar and will march towards Parliament on Monday, demanding enactment of a central law to take care of their harassment and troubles, Mr Singh said, adding that domestic workers rights also have human rights.
