New Delhi, Jan. 28 (ANI): The Congress on Thursday targeted the Centre and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi for failure to address the grievances of municipal sanitation workers.
“This is a repeat drama that has been in existence, Delhi is suffering. We talk about ‘Swachh Bharat’, we talk about both AAP and BJP interested in Swachh Bharat and what Delhi gets is a very unhealthy situation where the missionary that were supposed to keep Delhi clean have not been paid salaries. Bad finance management and bad unhygienic situation in Delhi is emerging,” Congress leader Tom Vadakkan told ANI here.
In a bid to grab the Delhi government’s attention, municipal employees held a protest outside Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s camp office. The agitators dumped garbage outside his office and raised slogans, demanding the release of their salaries.
The municipal employees had called for a complete municipal shut down on Wednesday due to non payment of salaries for over three months, bringing services like sanitation, primary health and primary education to a halt. (ANI)
