MCD workers’ strike enters day 10

New Delhi: Strike by the MCD workers entered its 10th day as the protestors continued their agitation in Delhi’s Bhajanpura area.

The agitators raised slogans against Arvind Kejriwal and warned the Delhi Government against hiring private workers to clean the streets of the city.

The agitators also said that the non-payment of salaries is not the only issue, but there are other issues such as pending arrears and medical benefits.

They vowed to continue their protest until all their pending issues are resolved.

While Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party for the ongoing crisis and accused them of embezzling the funds allocated to MCD, BJP hit back at Kejriwal and advised him to show interest in serious governance rather than indulging in blame game.

Delhi CM Kejriwal also offered a loan of Rs.551 crore to the striking workers of two MCDs and urged them to call off their strike, but the MCDs turned it down.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has refused to intervene in the case and directed the petitioners to the Delhi High Court.
