New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister of Delhi supported the protests held by civic body employees for the demands of their salaries. MCD employees have been protesting for three days now and as part of their protests they put garbage in front of political leader’s houses.

“I support (the) demand of protesting MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) employees that they should get their full salaries,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader tweeted.

“I hope some solution will emerge” after Tuesday’s hearing on the issue in the Delhi High Court, he added.

Sanitation workers have been on strike demanding immediate payment of salaries and pending back wages. In some areas, they have not only refused to clear garbage but have littered it on the streets.

Health department workers of the civic body have also joined the protest, also demanding payment of salaries.

The civic body is divided into three zones, all three run by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The BJP has accused the AAP-controlled Delhi government of starving the civic body of funds, leading to the present crisis. The Delhi government denies the charge. Earlier this months MCD teachers also held protests as they also have not bee paid their salaries since October.(IANS)

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government of being anti-Dalit and said his party will defeat the BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Gandhi, who led his party’s day-long fast at Rajghat to highlight atrocities against Dalits and other communities, said party workers were protesting against an ideology, a way of thinking.

Rahul Gandhi is against Modi and his rule.

“The atmosphere that has been created in the country, it is due to the ideology of the BJP. BJP’s ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities. We are against the ideology of the BJP. We are standing against it today, we will stand against it throughout our lives. And we will defeat them in the 2019 elections,” Gandhi told reporters.

Asked about BJP Dalit MPs writing to Modi with their complaints, Gandhi said: “You talk to them in Parliament. They also tell us that Modiji is a casteist person, an anti-Dalit person. He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this. It is not a secret.”

Gandhi attacked BJP President Amit Shah for likening the coming together of opposition parties to “snakes, mongoose, dogs and cats” climbing a tree trunk to save themselves from floods. He said every person in the country was against the BJP.

“Some days back a BJP leader said that opposition members were animals. The truth is that today every person in the country is standing against the government. The approach that this government has against Dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers, we are standing against it,” he said. Gandhi said the country will not accept that Modi government “spreads violence, hatred in the country… We are standing here against this ideology.”
