After targeting Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s house Thursday, municipal corporation workers’ dumped garbage outside Transport Minister Gopal Rai’s house and office Friday. Thousands of municipal workers are on strike as all categories of workers remain unpaid and sanitation services have been affected for the third day.

Over the last year, MCD employees (mostly sanitation workers) have gone off work five times — in February, June, October, November 2015 and January 2016. Owing to the lack of funds and intermittent strikes, the corporation’s sanitation services have been affected and development and welfare functions have been temporarily suspended.

 

The United Front of MCD Employees said workers will continue to dump garbage outside ministers’ houses as long as their issue remains unresolved.
“We have tried to seek appointments, we have presented memorandums, we have protested peacefully but the only thing that draws the government’s attention to our problem is when the garbage spills on to the streets that they have to cross,” said Rajendra Mewati, general secretary of the front.

While the AAP has alleged a “salary scam” in the MCDs, the Congress pointed to a reduction in funds for the corporation by the Kejriwal government.
“Budget allocation to the MCDs has gone down from Rs 3,128 crore during the Congress government to Rs 2,457 under the AAP. Under 15 years of Congress rule in Delhi, the situation was never so grim,” said Pradesh Congress chief Ajay Maken Friday.

Demanding a high level inquiry to find out the MCDs’ expenditure, Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra said the corporations must provide details of their accounts to determine where the funds allocated to them have been spent. “… In all three municipal corporations, a big salary scam has been carried out by the BJP. The question is how will the lid be taken off this scam? Who is behind it?” he said.

While the government claims to have released all funds, the MCDs assert that only grants due to the civic bodies have been released, while global share and municipal reform fund remain unpaid since 2013.

          MCD is under BJP rule. The ruling elite has misappropriated the funds to such an extent that they cannot pay the ry? Let the workers go to MCD functionaries house and dump garbage and stage protest before Narendra Modi.At the instance of BJP, these people are creating nuisance with Delhi Govt and the w India is watching this farce. In next elections in West Bengal and North East and UP, BJP candidates will loose their security deposits. Anarchy does not pay.

              AAP leader especially main 3 or 4 leaders deserve this kind of treatment due to their foul mouthing each and every body. However one must desist going to this extent of throwing garbage in their court yard. They must have gone to court as this is very sensitive issue and no law says ry should be dela.

                And you would like us to believe the 1.5 lakh workers don't know why they are accusing AAP minister of not paying their dues.

                  So he got elected so that he can afford school for all his kids? What a reason! And I thought the AAP types believe in sending their kids to government schools where its almost free? And using public transport...and using public healthcare...and not use government bungalows....Well no the real question is why are workers protesting at AAP ministers doorstep, don't you think that many number of workers would know better on who is at fault?

Their misconduct, cacophony and use of 4-letter words is their best self description. I scoffingly term these uncouth 'Bechaaras' as 'Chhichora', 'Tuchcha', 'Ochchha' or 'Ghatiya'.These muck-mouth cesspooled ab origins of gutterland survive only by deep breathing in their natural habitat of septic tanks Lacking in logic, their only resort is use of foul language.

                              Garbage politics in play. A nation where muck slinging holds the centre stage, not much hope except dismay. Corruption is the linchpin of BJP ruled MCDs and it clearly is posing problems to AAP Government. Obviously inciting employees to stage frequent demonstrations, little realising its far reaching implicarions

                                    You all voted AAP with the thumping majority. Be patient to take this torture as AAPis only interested in supporting its votebank to rewin the elections. They would pay subsidy to the vote bank Evan if there is no money to pay MCD empyoees.

                                            All the organised unions in the country have political godfathers and these Godfathers are the cause of all the lawlessness and mob violence and browbeating of hardworking officials and politicians. The AAP politicians are too naive and innocent in their dealings with such goondas. The BJP/Congress perpetuated a mafia raj, a dysfunctional governance system in the country which has many faces. The Delhi system of government is one such creation of the previous political dispensation--where power is with the Centre but responsibilities distributed over many organisations and elected govts --is engineered to cause trouble. The AAP leaders will not be allowed to perform-- daily the attacks will increase as the wellmeaning AAP show their effectiveness in doing public good, whether it is the odd/even initiative or mohalla sabhas or mohalla clinics or better public construction projects management etc etc. The attacks will come from the delhi police on trumped up charges, from mobs of the so called teacher unions, mobs of the safai karamcharis etc etc--some of whom are just freeloaders and been politically appointed in the lower ranks to keep the godfathers and their next generations in power for perpetuity. But all such corrupt systems ultimately collapse under their own greed. It may take an year or it may take a hundred years for the system to change but it will when the PUBLIC decides that enough is ENOUGH. Till then the PUBLIC must SUFFER-- that is universal law. How long the PUBLIC wants to be a SPECTATOR in politics is upto them.
