Greetings from Kachra Kamgar Union (KKU)! I am glad to inform you that finally, the Election Commission has started issuing voter cards (EPICs) to waste pickers (KKU members) of Delhi. Now, waste pickers can also cast their votes in Delhi.

As you already aware that Sajag Society/Kachara Kamgar Union in association with the Commission had been organizing exclusive facilitation camps for enrollment of waste pickers to Electoral Rolls of Delhi in the month of June-July 2014 and after being completed all the formalities, the Commission has been issuing voter cards (EPICs) to waste pickers (KKU members) of Delhi. Around 2000 Electoral Photo Identity Cards (EPICs) have already been issued by the Commission & distributed to KKU members and some will continue to be distributed.

I would like to convey my sincere thanks to all our friends, well wishers and volunteers for all their cooperation and encouragements. It is you, who always inspire us & it is only your cooperation which enabled us to achieve this significant milestone for our hardworking people.
