Govt should work for honorable rehabilitation of manual scavengers on prority

My name is Prakash Valmiki. I am calling from Fatehpur in Uttar Pradesh. Though Govt has made laws in 1989 and 1993 against manual scavenging but many women from my community still continue to do the work. We are trying to discourage them but Govt need to work for an honrable rehabilitation of these women on priority. For more Valmiki Ji can be reached at 09936119424
