Hundreds of people protested the recent deaths of several sewer cleaners in New Delhi on Tuesday, September 25. The demonstrators reportedly blamed the government for delaying compensation payments to families of the deceased and for failing to prevent such deaths via Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Clean India" program. Similar protests are possible in New Delhi over the coming days.
According to some sanitation activists, nearly 1800 sewer cleaners have suffocated to death while working over the past decade across the country.
Individuals in New Delhi are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
