Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday sacked six workers at three Anganwadi centres after he found irregularities during surprise inspection. The Aam Aadmi Party leader told the media that he had received several complaints about the working Anganwadi centres in east Delhi’s Krishna Nagar and Gandhi Nagar areas.
