New Delhi: The Delhi government will release Rs.500 crore to the civic bodies in the capital to clear salary arrears of sanitation workers, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday.

“We have decided to release Rs.500 crore to the North and East Delhi Municipal Corporations,” Kejrwal told a gathering of sanitation workers at Ramlila Maidan here.

He asked the workers to protest outside the houses of central ministers since the municipal corporations are controlled by the BJP.

Protesting over non-payment of salaries, sanitation workers have stopped coming to work, leading to garbage lying uncollected on roads across the national capital.

The Bharatiya Janata Party, which controls all the three municipal corporations in the city, has accused the Aam Aadmi Party government of not releasing the money.

The city government, however, says it is the outcome of mishandling of finances by the corporations.

The recent controversy created by the AAP’s (Aam Aadmi Party) elected MLA has shaken the whole of the administrative department. The body representing bureaucrats has come up in full force to protest against the atrocities done by AAP members.

One of the two legislators who had allegedly attacked Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, Amanatullah Khan yesterday surrendered at Jamia Nagar police station.

Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP’s goon inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.

Police have apprehended the second AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal on Tuesday night itself.

The assault of the government official has created a furore among fellow colleges and they have demanded an unconditional apology from Arvind Kejriwal.

Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP's goons inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.
Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP’s goons inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.

The crisis has led Home Minister, Rajnath Singh to intervene in this matter and hence a report is sought from Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on the same.

The AAP is trying to paint the whole scenario in some other way by calling it a nefarious design by BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party). But it is quite evident from the facts that AAP is trying to hide its heinous face by blaming BJP for all this fiasco.

Police have confirmed the assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash. Thus, it leaves us in no doubt that AAP party members have got the thirst for power in their head and they are claiming themselves above the law and order. It is the same government which promised the Delhi people to revolutionize the whole system but the current developments are pointing the needle towards raw craving for power and money by the Arvind Kejriwal led government.
