Garbage_on_a_roadsideThe Delhi High Court on Friday directed the city government to release due salaries of the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) employees by June 15.

A division bench of Justice S. Murlidhar and Justice I.S. Mehta also directed Delhi Police, Delhi government and the EDMC to take “immediate action to remove garbage” from the streets.

It also issued notice to Centre, Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government, and the EDMC while hearing a plea seeking directions for payment of salaries to the employees and removal of garbage from roads.

The court sought response on the plea by June 19. Fuming over delayed payment of wages, the EDMC sanitation workers went on a strike and piled up garbage on the streets of east Delhi. They struck work after not being paid salaries for April and May.

The EDMC has failed to pay salaries to its around 11,000 sanitation workers due to what it calls a financial crunch.
