NEW DELHI: Leader of Opposition from Aam Aadmi Party Vikas Goel in North Delhi Municipal Corporation said that the BJP ruled MCD is not paying salaries to the employees even during the festive season. On one hand, the MCD is organising a Diwali Milan program and on the other hand, it is strangling the happiness of the employees. BJP holds the Delhi government responsible for its own mistakes. Whereas it has been proved time and again in the High Court that the Delhi government does not owe a single penny to the MCD. The Aam Aadmi Party demands that the BJP-ruled MCD release the salaries of all the employees at the earliest.

Leader of Opposition from the Aam Aadmi Party in North Delhi Municipal Corporation Vikas Goel issued a statement on Thursday. Vikas Goyal said, “As you all know, the festive season is going on. Diwali is also approaching, which is considered to be the biggest festival for Hindus. It is very unfortunate that even during this time the employees of MCD are not getting their salary. Just yesterday DBC employees and teachers were striking as they did not get their salary. Today the sanitation workers are sitting on dharna."

Vikas Goel’s statement continued, “Even more unfortunate is the situation that the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled MCD has said that they will not be able to pay salaries to the employees. If at all, then only the cleaning workers would get paid – that too next week. This means that Diwali for all employees is going to be celebrated in the dark. The rest will bring new clothes, diyas, sweets for their families. On the other hand, the employees of MCD, who have not received salary for 2-3 months, their Diwali will pass in the dark of sorrow.”

He said, “Look at the shamelessness of BJP, it is blaming the Delhi government for its dark deeds. The raga which he used to sing earlier, is still engaged in the same raga that if the Delhi government will give funds, then they will pay salaries to the employees. Whereas it has been proved time and again in the Delhi High Court that the Delhi government does not owe a single penny of MCD. This clearly shows their lies and shamelessness. So all these allegations are made by these people only to mislead their employees and the people of Delhi.”

He added, “Ask their leaders and you will get some answers. Ask their mayor and you will get some other answer. Ask the Chairman of their standing committee, he says something else. Meaning these people prove their lies on their own because they do not even know the reality themselves. All their attention was focused on how to fill their pockets.”

Vikas Goel said, “the BJP sitting in the power of MCD is exploiting the employees for the last 15 years. Today I want to ask BJP State President Adesh Gupta ji, Mayors of all the three MCDs and all BJP leaders, by what moral authority you are sitting in the power of MCD for the last 15 years. You should be ashamed of your actions. If there is any morality left, then resign from MCD now.”

“How sad that while on one hand the Mayor of MCD is going to organise a Diwali Milan, on the other hand lakhs of employees of MCD are yearning to celebrate the festival. This clearly shows the insensitivity of the people of MCD. Those employees who are engaged in the service of Delhi day and night, who devoted their whole life in fulfilling the responsibilities of MCD, you are harassing, exploiting the same employees. Have some mercy on them, give them a chance to celebrate Diwali, give them a chance to keep your family happy. The Aam Aadmi Party demands that the BJP-ruled MCD release the salaries of all the employees at the earliest. Otherwise our protest will continue.” he concluded.
