Ram also said that they want to request the MCG who employed Satte Singh, owner of Balaji Contractor, to pay them full amount, which was decided at the start of the work.
Commissioner Vijay Dhaiya also looked worried after the protesters blocked the road and he quickly called the local police. But at the spot police was also not able to take any action and apparently seemed to be agreeing with the demands of Safai Karamcharis.?
"What they can do? Government should pay them their money on time. They are poor people who earn through these small labour works. If you don’t pay these small amounts, you can expect these protests," a policeman standing there said.
This is not the first time that Balaji Contractors is in news. Many a time, the local people and councillors alleged that he was not doing the work honestly and properly. RWAs are also annoyed with his inefficiency and dishonesty.?
He was also boycotted by the MCG earlier when many councillors complained against him in monthly corporation meetings but the question remains: why is he still operating and getting contracts from corporation.
