AAP leaders clean garbage in Delhi

New Delhi, Jan 31 (IANS) Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, including Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, on Sunday cleared garbage piled up by protesting civic workers in various parts of the national capital.

Employees of three civic corporations of Delhi are on indefinite strike from January 27, demanding immediate payment of their salaries and pending wages.

In some areas, sanitation workers have not only refused to clear garbage but have littered it on the streets.

While Sisodia cleaned up garbage in his assembly constituency Patparganj in east Delhi, Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra swept streets in the city’s Karawal Nagar.

Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel also led a team in Shahdara area to clear the garbage littered on the street.

Delhi’s civic body was divided into three entities in May 2012, and all three are run by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The BJP has accused the AAP-controlled Delhi government of starving the civic corporations of funds, leading to the present crisis. The Delhi government denies the allegation.

The Delhi government on Saturday formed a taskforce as part of special arrangements for removing garbage from across the national capital.

The public works department of the city government has deployed 93 vehicles to clean garbage dumps.
