It is another miserable act on the part of Delhi Govt not looking into the suffering conditions of such manual scavangers in the capital of India. Although it was banned by law a number of poor people are forced to perform such inhuman acts in the 21st century. It is a great shame on the part of Delhi Govt.
This clearly shows that the deranged politicians are playing havoc on the precious lives of those poor and illierate people in the capital. The politicians who rule such States should be severely punished for their untoward acts
There should be a public cry from all sides against such inhuman treatment meted out to the poor people in the society. We cannot expect a decent and transparent Govt before the utter corruption to hold the power on the cost of such suffering citizens who are denied even natural justice given in our constitution. The wretched politicians are enjoying on the hard work of nations poor and suffering people.

Shakuntala, Radha, Bala, Santa and Lata were earning through 'Manual scavenging' work; do you think that they were happy doing this ? They were not minors and unemployed. Will Union Government, NGOs or Supreme Court provide them an alternative livelihood ?
If not, irrespective of Manual scavenging is banned or not, we will find Shakuntalas, Radhas, Balas, Santas and Latas in our neighbourhood.
Please explore in Chennai Ratna Store/Saravana Store or your nearby grocery store or resturant - in spite of stringent child labor ban, Why Children below 14 years are still found working ?
For your kind information: The US Government provides unemployment allownce up to $1200 for 6 months and provides food stamps of abput $240 per month for poor etc. When you have seen your Government did so ? Some rules are nice to have but when one is hungry - who cares for rules ?
