MCD workers stage protest by throwing garbage on streets

Delhiites on Friday woke up to stinking scenes at many places in the city as sanitation workers of MCD threw garbage on roads at several circles and roundabouts in protest against the non-payment of their salaries for the last couple of months. The protesters were also approaching the residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal but were reportedly convinced by the officials not to do so. The garbage on the middle of the road led to traffic snarls in many places across the national Capital.

“It’s very difficult to mange the traffic here as we can’t stand on the road. The vehicles slow down while passing through the garbage,” said a traffic police personnel at West Vinod Circle in East Delhi.

The area comes in Patparganj, the Assembly constituency of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish
Sisodia. Garbages were thrown in Patparganj, Laxmi Nagar, Shahdara and other places of East Delhi along with Civil Lines, Rohini and the Old City area.

On the other hand Congress Pradesh chief Ajay Maken on Friday met Lieutenant-Governor over the present financial crisis in all three municipal corporations. The Congress sought urgent intervention to sort out the financial crisis in the Delhi local bodies by taking up the matter forcefully with the Central and Delhi government, so that the civic services are not brought to a grinding halt in Delhi.
