New Delhi, Dec 5 (ANI): Women members of the All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC), the workers outfit of Communist Party of India undertook a street march to the Parliament House here on Friday.

Holding banners on 'Equal Rights', women working in various industrial and service sectors from all over India participated in the march.

They were demanding equal pay for equal work, which they said, is their basic right.

Trade union leaders said that demands regarding the conditions vis-à-vis working women were judicious since they are reflected in the Fundamental as well as the Directive Principles Rights spelt out in the Constitution of India.

"We have raised the issue of domestic and home based workers. We have met the Prime Minister and he has said that he will speak about our memorandum with the Finance Ministry. The financial implication needs to be taken care of. Only then something can be decided," said Rekha Chandran, an activist. (ANI)
