Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung has offered Rs. 300 crore loan to the North and East Delhi municipal corporations from DDA to end the deadlock created after indifinte strike by MCD workers.

Yesterday, a delegation of agitating sanitation workers met Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and said the fund offered by the AAP government for paying their salaries were “insufficient”.

While the MCD workers refused to call off their strike, they claimed that the LG has assured them of looking into their demands.
