New Delhi, Feb.8 (ANI): Asserting that the Delhi High Court’s intervention, asking the MCD workers to call off their strike, has made it very clear that there would be no compromise on the issue of cleanliness, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was playing ‘politics on garbage’.
“The Delhi High Court, through its intervention, has made it very clear that there would be no compromise on the issue of cleanliness and that no one has the right to continue creating problems. The High Court has in very clear words said the strike must be called off,” AAP leader Dilip Pandey told ANI.
Pandey said the next hearing in this case would take place on February 10.
“One big faction of the MCD has already called off the strike. I think the union should not continue its strike,” he added.
Pandey further said the BJP would be given a befitting reply by the people of Delhi in the upcoming MCD elections.
“We have cleared away the garbage politics of the BJP. Now, they want to play politics on garbage in Delhi. I am pretty sure that a befitting reply would be given to them in the upcoming MCD elections,” he added.
The AAP leader said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has assured the MCD workers that they would not be facing any problems as far as salary is concerned.
The three municipal corporations today told the High Court that they have released their wages which would be received by all within two days. The workers claimed that majority of them have not received salaries for January though the corporations say that the wages were released on February 5.
The High Court bench took on record the statements made by both sides and listed the matter on February 10 when it will also hear the arguments on issues of payment of other arrears as well as unification of the corporations, which were raised today by unions representing the workers.
Meanwhile, the United Front of MCD Employees has suspended their strike till February 10. (ANI)
