NEW DELHI: As Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung made a unilateral offer of Rs. 300 crores as loan to the North and East Corporations from the DDA, the forum of Municipal Corporation of Delhi Engineers Association called off their strike on Saturday.

The offer would help pay the workers till March 31.

Jung has also assured the three mayors of the MCD that he would speak to the government for implementation of the recommendations of the Fourth Finance Commission to find a long-term solution to the problems of the workers.
