“We conducted a strike for the rights of the garbage collectors. We held a meeting with MC officials on Wednesday and raised our demands that MC should sign the pending MOU with the garbage collectors as soon as possible so that they are not restricted by people from doing their jobs. We also raised our other pending issues,” said Dharamveer Rana, a member of the garbage collectors’ union.

When contacted, municipal commissioner Anindita Mitra said, “The demands of garbage collectors were heard. They resumed the work on Wednesday afternoon. No services will be affected further.”
