The Municipal Corporation of Delhi's sanitation worker have told the High Court that they are ready to call off the strike by this evening, even as the stand-off entered its 13th day today over the non-payment of salaries and allowances.
The court will hear the pending arrears issue, on February 10.
On Saturday, the Municipal Corporation Teachers Association called off their indefinite strike after they received their pending salaries. Along with the teachers, MCD doctors and para-medical staff have also ended their strike.
Clear arrears, make temporary workers permanent
With garbage piling up in different areas, the strike has clearly made life difficult for everyone. "We should get all our dues from 2003. The temporary workers should be made permanent. The Delhi Government, had on 23 October, 2015, said that the pending arrears would be cleared. But, it hasn't been cleared even now. The government is misleading us and somewhere we are becoming the victims of politics," said one of the protestors.
"If any Talibani diktat is announced or if even a single employee of the MCD is removed, then we will make this protest very aggressive and the government will then have to pay its price," he added.
