Mysore/Mysuru: The indefinite Statewide stir launched by ASHA workers seeking fulfilment of their various demands reached eleventh day today. 

Pointing out that even after eleven days of their protests and agitation, their demands have not met, P.S. Sandhya, a member of the ASHA Workers’ Federation (AIUTUC) said, “Over 47 eminent personalities of the State including writers Dr. Baraguru Ramachandrappa, Devanuru Mahadeva, Vaidehi, social activist P. Mallesh, veteran theatre artiste Prof. Rameshwari Varma and others have rendered support to our ongoing agitation. Despite several pleas, representations and memorandums to the State Government, the district administrations and people representatives over the past six months, the authorities have failed to fulfil our demands.” 

AIUTUC State Secretary D. Nagalakshmi and State President K. Somashekhar Yadagiri released a press note this morning, which listed out various issues faced by agitating ASHA workers. Protesting ASHA workers warned that they would not return to work unless their demands are met.
