New Delhi:  The Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked city police commissioner to ensure that municipal corporation employees are not obstructed by the striking sanitation workers from lifting garbage from roads in the national capital.

A division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath in an interim order restrained the associations of safai karmacharis (sanitation workers) unions from obstructing removal of garbage.

It also issued notice to Delhi Police Commissioner and sought its response by January 8, 2016.

The East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) filed an application seeking direction to the safai karamchaaris working under them to comply with the court’s earlier order.

It told the court that EDMC is again facing obstruction in lifting the garbage from the areas within its jurisdiction due to the strike and agitation by the safai karamchaaris including the joint forum of unions.

In its earlier orders had directed sanitation workers not to obstruct to the removal of garbage, after they went on strike due to non payment of salaries.
