Fourteen months after the Central Government included waste pickers in the Pre-Matriculation Scheme for children of those engaged in “Unclean Occupations”, the Government of Maharashtra has not acted on the government GR. This has deprived over 60,000 children in the state of Maharashtra; children belonging to one of the most marginalised social and economic communities. Dr. Baba Adhav will preside over the programme.

The Social Justice Ministry will henceforth be called the Ministry of Social (In)Justice.

Kagad Kach Patra Kashtakari Panchayat (KKPKP) would like to invite you to the (re)naming ceremony.
