Even after completing Masters degree, he was denied promotion in BMC and continue to clean streets of Mumbai in the night and study in day time. He also engages in awareness campaign for Safai Karmachari (cleaning workers) and advocacy at national and international level. Now he has got an opportunity to raise the plight of cleaning workers and their human rights violation at United Nations Human Rights Council, Geneva. He is supported by Prahar, an NGO in Special Consultative Status with UN but unable to fund his tickets and stay. Being cleaning worker with meagre income, its very important for Sunil to speak for the rights of cleaning workers at UN.
Cleaning workers in India still remain one of the most deprived group despite legal protection and entitlement and suffer from everyday humiliation in the system. Therefore this opportunity is a historic opportunity for Sunil to raise the issue as well as build cross border solidarity and fight for the human rights of cleaning workers.
