In this edition of Off Centre, Anuradha SenGupta speaks to activist Bezwada Wilson about the ongoing survey of manual scavengers being conducted by the Government of India. Not yet complete, it shows a four-fold rise in the number of people involved in the unlawful practice. The introduction of the ambitious nation-wide cleanliness campaign, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, has also not changed the situation of manual scavengers. Wilson who heads the Safai Karmachari Andolan explains how woefully short India has fallen on delivering the Constitutional guarantees of equality and justice to a large section of people.
