SATYAMEV JAYATE effect: Aamir Khan to meet Prime Minister about manual scavenging

The actor had highlighted the issue on his show last week

Aamir Khan will call on Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in New Delhi to highlight the problems of manual scavengers engaged in cleaning human waste, an aide said Sunday. According to the aide, Aamir is scheduled to call on the Prime Minister on Monday morning. Among other things, he will bring to the Prime Minister’s notice the problems of manual scavengers in different parts of the country.

Aamir had highlighted the issue in the tenth episode of his popular television programme Satyamev Jayate which aired on July 8. An estimated 300,000 manual workers are engaged in this degrading profession and continue to be regarded as social outcasts.

Earlier, Aamir had made a presentation before a parliamentary committee on issues concerning the medical and pharmaceutical sector after a show on the subject triggered a nationwide debate. He had even met Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot over the issue of female foeticide.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    Thanks Aamir.Please please please push the matter about abolishing scavenger work and redeploying these poor bretheren of our world working (tortured) as scavengers.
    I could not sleep for few days after the program on them.

    In India powerful people can manage to get things moving. I thank you and Kiran for your efforts.Kindly involve the support of your influential friends and stop all nonsense in our country.

    Please advise the researchers to prepare a drug for controlling sexual desires (lust)which when not controlled leads to rape and increase of prostitution trade, another horriying evil in the soceity.
