As the Delhi Municipal Corporation employees’ strike entered its 8th day, thousands of sanitation workers protested on the capital’s roads, dumped garbage and choked roads. They allege they haven’t been paid their salaries for over 2 month. 16,000 teachers, 7,000 doctors of civic body-run organisations also joined the strike as schools and hospitals ceased to function. The Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, has accused the BJP of instigating the strike and alleged massive corruption in BJP-led civic bodies. He also said he would loan Rs. 550 crores to agencies so they could pay what they owe the workers.
