NEW DELHI: The Janata Dal (United) on Monday claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government is fanning the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) workers’ strike in the national capital and stopping the AAP state government from functioning.
“The situation in Delhi is due to non-cooperation by the central government. An elected government is being stopped from carrying out its duties,” JD (U) leader K C Tyagi told ANI.
Tyagi’s comments come in the wake of the MCD workers’ strike entering its sixth day over non-payment of salaries. The strike seems to be snowballing into a crisis with MCD school teachers also deciding to join the agitation from today.
Delhi Ministers, AAP MLAs and hundreds of party workers yesterday hit the streets to clear overflowing garbage dumps.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today said his government’s attempt to clean the roads of Delhi was not a photo opportunity, asserting that garbage was actually being picked.
