Sisodia distributed free passes to some construction workers at a reception held at the secretariat in Delhi. “10,000,000 workers have been registered in Delhi. In the past year, the government of Kejriwal has distributed Rs 600,000,000 among the 10,000,000 registered workers (under various welfare schemes), which represents the highest amount distributed among workers across the country,” he said.
Sisodia asked workers to spend the money they would save from free bus passes for their families and not waste it on other things. Construction workers include masons, painters, welders, carpenters, crane operators, among others.
Sisodia interacted with some of the beneficiaries who told him that they spend hundreds of rupees per month to get to their place of work.
