first_imgGurugram: Death of workers due to manual scavenging does not seem to cease despite various governments announcing that there will be the usage of technology to deal with the challenge.In Gurugram alone, as many as 10 workers lost their lives in the last two years while cleaning sewers. The data collected by the National Commission for Safai Karamcharis (NCSK) shows that at least 50 workers died cleaning sewers in the first six months of 2019. This data, according to the commission, is a gross underestimate and includes figures of only eight states — Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Punjab, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Despite officials of MCG insisting that manholes are cleaned with machines, the situation on the ground paints a different picture.last_img
