Mr Hiremath had Chandrasekhar Hiremath today resorted to an indefinite fast in front of the Deputy Commissioner's office here in support of a long-pending demand.

The Association had been pressing for the demand for over an year now. As there was no response from the government, Mr Hiremath resorted to the indefinite fast.

The members had resorted to various agitations, including semi-naked procession, formation of human chain and demonstrations, over the last few days to draw the government's attention in vain.

Significantly, the Supreme Court had recently dismissed the daily wage workers' petition in this regard.
