The plight of the construction workers was exposed to the hilt as it became so obvious and apparent, during the construction work for the preparation of Commonwealth Games of 2010. Seeing the deplorable conditions of the labourers at many of the CWG sites living in inhuman, unhuman and undignified conditions, Peoples Union for Democratic Rights (PUDR) and Nirmaan Mazdoor Panchayat Sangam (NMPS) came forward and filed the present petition under Article 226 of the Constitution of India for a writ of mandamus and other directions to ameliorate the working conditions of these workers with endeavour to get them their rights guaranteed under the Constitution as well as in the Building and Other Construction Workers (Regulation of Employment and Condition of Services) Act, 1996.
