Hundreds of doctors, nurses, sanitation workers, teachers and other employees of the municipal corporations have been protesting against the non-payment of wages for a long time. On October 25, the NDMC Medical College and the Resident Doctors Association of Hindu Rao Hospital had gone on an indefinite hunger strike against non-payment of salary.
Resident doctors of Hindu Rao Hospital had been protesting against the non-payment of salary for a few weeks. Many doctors sat outside the hospital demanding their dues pending for several months and shouted slogans against the Delhi government.
Earlier in September, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) had also urged the Union Ministries of Finance and Home Affairs to intervene to help pay salaries and pension dues of their employees. None of the health workers working in the five hospitals under the NDMC have been given arrears for at least three months.
