The meeting was convened following minister Munde’s demand to make operational late Gopinath Munde Ustod Kamgar Mahamandal for the welfare sugarcane cutters.
Mr Pawar said that in about 101 co-operative and 87 private sugar factories in the state, about eight to ten lakh sugarcane harvesting workers have migrated from different districts of the state.
These migrant cane harvesting workers must benefit from social security schemes. Migrant cane harvesting workers should work in coordination with the concerned departments of the state government to avail the benefits of social security schemes, he told.
He suggested that these hostels should be set up in a quality manner, in addition to the currently sanctioned hostels, in the districts where a large number of sugarcane workers live and also instructed to provide all facilities to these buildings.
