Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) president Satish Upadhyay on Saturday criticised AAP-led Delhi Government for not fulfilling the demands of the workers of Municipal Corporation and said that the latter should stop playing politics over it.
“The Delhi Government should give 3,200 crore to three Municipal Corporations. They have the money for advertisement, they have money to pay their employees but they do not have money to give the poor ‘Safai karamcharis’. They should avoid this kind of politics,” Upadhyay told ANI here.
“Delhi Government is fooling the people. They are defaming the MCD. Just because of their double-standards they are responsible for the accumulation of garbage which led to rise in cases of Dengue. Even earlier they gave money after the intervention of the court. Similarly there has been rise in cases of swine flu,” he added.
The sanitation crisis has hit the national capital again with the municipal corporations going on strike demanding permanent jobs, arrears and cash-less medical insurance.
The ‘Safai karamcharis’ of the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) protested outside the Shahdara (South) Zone office and left garbage piling on the streets as a sign of protest.
