New Delhi: The financial crisis in East Corporation seems to be never-ending. Officials claim that a similar crisis may be witnessed after July. The civic body has received Rs 134 crore under their global share from Delhi government and officials claim that without the state’s support they won’t be able to find a solution for paying their staff salaries.
“The fund we received from the government and money we have generated is enough to pay our employees till July. But we don’t know how we are going to manage funds after that. We will need help from the government to avoid another crisis,” said East Corporation mayor, Harshdeep Malhotra.
The corporation is likely to move court if a similar situation comes up and the government doesn’t provide help. “We will move court if our grant is not issued by the government,” he added.
During the clean-up operation approximately 17,358 tonnes of garbage has been cleared from east Delhi roads. “We have cleared maximum garbage from the streets and the situation is under control. We are still monitoring the areas on a regular basis. The remaining garbage will be removed within 4-5 days,” said additional commissioner, Pawan Sharma.
Recently, east Delhi had faced a major sanitation crisis after safai karamcharis went on an 11-day strike to protest against non-payment of their salaries. Tonnes of garbage were left unattended on the roads. After the condition was highlighted by TOI, the government and corporation were forced to act immediately and ensure that the situation was brought under control.
