MCD strike enters day 13; Delhi suffers as garbage mounts on roads

New Delhi: The strike of sanitation workers in Municipal Corporations of Delhi (MCD) has entered its 13th day on Monday over the non- payment of salary and allowances.

With garbage piling up in several areas, the strike is creating difficulty for the people. One of the protestors said, "We should get all our dues from 2003. The temporary workers should be made permanent. The Delhi Government had on October 23, 2015 said that the pending arrears would be cleared. But, it hasn't been cleared even now. The government is misleading us and somewhere we are becoming the victims of politics."

On Saturday, after receiving their pending salaries, Municipal Corporation Teachers Association ended their indefinite strike. In addition to the teachers, MCD doctors and para-medical staff have also called off their strike.

Earlier, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung had offered additional loan of Rs. 300 crore to East and North corporations to clear the salary of protesting workers. The Delhi Government had also offered Rs.693 crores to the corporations in this regard but the protesters are asking for permanent solution to their salaries issue.
