As the indefinite strike by contractual sanitation workers enters its ninth day, garbage has been piling up across the city.
Following the indefinite strike by contractual sanitation workers that began nine days ago, garbage has piled up in all sectors of the city. PK Agarwal, additional CEO of Noida Authority, met members of the Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Association (FONRWA) on May 26 at the federation’s office in Sector 52 and sought suggestions for addressing the issue.
Agarwal told the federation that many sanitation workers were ready to resume work but a section of agitators were prohibiting them as they have been demanding permanent job from the Authority.
NP Singh, president of the federation, assured the Authority that residents would help such sanitation workers once they resume work. Singh also suggested that the Authority take help from the police to avoid any clashes among the workers.
AN Dhawan, secretary general, RS Yadav, senior project engineer (health), Amrish Tyagi, president of Sector 52 RWA, and Ashok Sharma, general secretary of Sector 52 RWA, were present in the meeting.
