Indu Bala, state vice president of the UPABKS said, “Each district unit has conducted meetings, and we will have ASHAs coming from almost all the districts across UP. We also demand medical insurance for ASHA workers as they work round-the-clock to ensure woman and children get best of the health services provided by the state government.”

We should be given salary instead of payments in parts for each work we do. A salary will ensure we can take good care of our children after working for the state government, said Seema Singh.
