New Delhi: As Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung made a unilateral offer of Rs. 300 crores as loan to the North and East Corporations from the DDA, the forum of Municipal Corporation of Delhi Engineers Association called off their strike on Saturday.
The offer would help pay the workers till March 31. Jung has also assured the three mayors of the MCD that he would speak to the government for implementation of the recommendations of the Fourth Finance Commission to find a long-term solution to the problems of the workers.
He also requested the MCD workers to get back to work for the sake of the people of Delhi. Earlier, the Delhi High Court had issued notices to all unions to explain why they continued to remain on strike. The court observed that common people in the city are suffering owing to the ongoing tussle between the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled MCD and the Aam Aadmi Party-ruled Delhi Government.
