Friday: The Delhi Police arrested over 120 BJP councilors from outside CM Arvind Kejriwal’s residence, where they were staging a protest. The protestor were forcibly removed by the police and the detained were taken to Civil Lines and Maurice Nagar police station. The protest demanded the release of funds for salaries of the sanitation workers. The protesting group was led by Subhash Arya, a senior BJP councilor who demanded the release of the municipal funds from Kejriwal as per the Fourth Delhi Finance Commission (FDFC).

The sanitation workers of East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) who did not receive their salaries in the last few months have been on a strike for about a week now. As per news, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has cited lack of budget for the non-payment of worker’s salaries. The Delhi governance is directly accused by the MCD (is controlled by the BJP ) for the crisis since the former failed to finalise the relevant clauses in the FDFC 2009, which would have been a shot in the arm for the financially infirm municipal body. However amidst Kejriwal and BJP conflict, residents of east Delhi have been in some serious trouble due to the strike.
