Jai Prakash compalined that three Delhi Mayors have been sitting outside the CM’s residence since 11 am but nobody has given them an appointment as yet.
“Nobody has given us an appointment as yet. We’re sitting just as we were since 11 a.m. The CM must meet us, listen to the municipality heads (mayors) and explain to us the exact disbursal procedure and particulars of the due amount of Rs 13,000 crores,” Jai Prakash told ANI.
Mayors are holding a sit-in protest outside the residence of Chief Minister Kejriwal over the non-payment of salaries of the employees of the municipal corporation. They have asserted that their employees are struggling to meet the ends. However, the Delhi Government is not working in this direction.
