Delhi government alleged that MCD has misused the funds provided for payment of salaries. Also, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had given a statement in support of the agitating sanitation workers.

Kejriwal also announced releasing of funds worth Rs 700 crore, including Rs 551 crore loan for the East and North municipal corporations to solve the problem. However, the offer failed to placate the workers and they have decided to continue the strike.
