Cong blames AAP, BJP for MCD strike; holds protests

New Delhi: Delhi Congress workers today held demonstrations across the city holding AAP and BJP responsible for the ongoing MCD employees’ strike in the national capital.

“Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken blamed the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi and the BJP government (at the Centre) for the present plight of Delhi as MCD sanitation workers and others have been on strike due to non-payment of their salaries,” a statement said.

The demonstrations were held in 14 districts including Adarsh Nagar, Karol Bagh, Chandni Chowk, Tilak Nagar, Najafgarh, Rohini, Mehrauli, Badarpur and Karawal Nagar.

Maken warned that Delhi Congress would intensify its agitation against AAP and BJP if they did not immediately solve the problems plaguing the municipal corporations, the statement said.

Thousands of MCD sanitation workers, doctors, nurses and engineering staff have been on strike, affecting services in the national capital.
