MCD teachers along with MCD sanitation workers, doctors and nurses have not been paid their salaries for past many months, with the funding situation only worsening for them thanks to the showdown between Delhi’s AAP Government and BJP-led MCD.
After a week of protest Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced a loan of Rs.551 crore to the MCD so the employees could be paid.
Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung had then met the protesters on February 5 and offered an additional loan of Rs.300 crore and requested them to call off their strike.
In the past few months MCD teachers have protested many times for their salaries to be paid, but to no avail.
