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.

    Ha ha! Ch..tiyawal says MCD misused the funds, then he release funds to pay ry? If they misused the money, why give them more money? And surely you must be having records of how much money you gave to whom and for what purpose? That is the job of the job. Nautankiwal, as always, stop barking and present some evidence for your worthless accusations. The MCD workers are not blind AAPs to accept anything the Fuhrer says.

      The centre should do a FULL AUDIT of both MCD and Delhi Govt . As far as I know the Delhi govt is having much less responsibility as compared to MCD. But most of the tax money is accrued by state govt and is wasting on Kejriwal's publicity for the PM's race in 2019, Free water, free power etc. Delhi is a very small state and its administration is much like other metro cities like Chennai and Mumbai. The only achievement of the state Govt is creating Anarchy
