Delhi's Anaj Mandi factory example of exploitation of workers: Ashwini Choubey

Union Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Ashwini Choubey met the Delhi fire injured at LNJP hospital on Dec 08. A fire had broken out in a factory at Anaj Mandi and more than 50 people received severe injuries. At least 43 people succumbed to injuries in the incident. Speaking to ANI regarding incident, MoS Choubey said, "It is heartbreaking and a very sad incident. All those who injured, belong to labour class and are mostly from Bihar. It is more miserable that even children also work in this factory." He further said, "The way the illegal factory was operating is already questionable and even the children were also working in it. No proper facility was given to those who were working in this factory. It was a live example of exploitation of factory workers."
