This is 10th such dead case in this month from Delhi itself

A  sanitation worker died during cleaning the sewage on Sunday,
whereas 3 are in severe condition.

Rishi Pal a sewage worker entered the 15-feet deep tank first but fell
unconscious within seconds of entering the sewer. Co-workers of Rishi
called him but he did not answer back. After few minutes another
worker Bishan entered the sewer to look for Rishi but he too fell
unconscious. More two co-workers Kiran (30) and Sumit (22) also got
affected by the toxic gases.

However, all the workers were shifted to government hospital were
Rishi was declared dead whereas, other three are in severe condition.

This is 10th such dead case in this month from delhi itself. Such
leniency of the authorities is putting the lives of thousands of
sanitation workers at risk.

Delhi police has booked the contractor of the victims under Sections
304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and 308 (attempt to
commit culpable homicide) of the Indian Penal Code.

Supreme Court in 2014 announced 10 lakh compensation for sanitation
workers, whereas many families of the workers who died during working
or cleaning the sewage have not received any such compensation.

Sewer gas is a complex mixture of toxic and nontoxic gases produced
and collected in sewage systems by the decomposition of organic
household or industrial wastes, typical components of sewage. Sewer
gases may include hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, methane, carbon monoxide,
sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. These gases are poisonous to the
body’s cells and can also kill a person as soon as it is inhaled.

Earlier Hindu world has shown how BMC is being careless towards
protection of its workers.

Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, in a 3-page letter to PM Narendra Modi, questioned the dismissal of Atishi Marlena who had been advising Delhi government on education reforms.

“The best educational institutions are accessible by only 5% of the population. The rest, mostly the poor, depend on government schools to educate their children. Giving better education to the children of such people is our patriotism,” Sisodia said in the letter addressing the improvement in the standard of education provided by the government.

“The education minister, secretary or education director doesn’t have to be an education expert in our country. In my opinion, this is a reason for poor quality in India’s school education. We appointed Atishi, who is well-educated and experienced, as an advisor for the better future of children of Delhi,” he added.

The deputy CM claimed that despite lack of support in the last three years there has been remarkable development work in the city. He urged the PM to visit any Delhi government school to witness the change.
