Aamir called on the prime minister at his official residence at 7, Race Course Road, and sought that the practice be done away with.
Later, in a joint press conference with Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Wasnik, Amir said that both Singh and Wasnik were aware of the issue and would step up efforts to address it as soon as possible. He met Wasnik at his office in Shastri Bhawan.
"We believe that every person should have the right to live a life of dignity. The fact that even today, a section of our society works as manual scavengers, it is unfortunate for not only the society but for entire nation," Wasnik said.
Aamir had highlighted the issue in a recent episode of his popular television programme "Satyameva Jayate".
