Khammam: The representatives of CITU, AITUC, IFTU and INTUC workers unions staged a relay hunger strike at Dharna Chowk in front of the Collectorate here on Monday, demanding that the government must increase the salaries of workers working in city municipal and corporation limits. Speaking on the occasion, CITU district secretary Narasinmha Rao said that many sanitary workers, working under city Municipal and corporation limits, have been discharging their duties with less salaries since many years and were living in miserable conditions.
