In the Name of National Pride:Blatant Violation of Workers'Rights at CWG Construction sites
On 14 December 2008, a worker died in an accident at the same site. What followed was unprecedented: workers at the site struck work and demanded that his body be released and shown to, them. They also demanded better working, living and sanitation conditions. This incidence also paved the way for PUDR to conduct a fact finding and speak to some workers at the site. This report attempts to show how the administration is colluding with builders by giving them a free hand vis-Ã -vis the labour laws, and how this has led to the denial of fundamental rights to the poorest citizens of India.
