Ashim Das Gupta, WB State Finance Minister, appreciated the services rendered by the anganwadi workers and helpers in bringing down the maternal mortality, child mortality and school drop out rates. He said that the anganwadi employees need a real salute and that is why the state government has increased their honorarium by Rs.500 with effect from 1 April 2010. Ratna Dutta, State General Secretary of the union, narrated the difficulties faced by the employees including the attacks by the local Trinamool goons.
