Kejriwal had last week expressed his support towards the demands of the agitating MCD workers who are on a strike over the non-payment of their dues.
The Delhi CM has maintained that the present MCD should be dissolved and fresh elections held.
The indefinite strike by the MCD workers has entered its eighth day today as they have shown no signs of backing down from their agitation so far.
The strike by the MCD workers has crippled traffic in the national capital. The crucial NH-24 connecting Ghaziabad with Delhi today witnessed huge traffic jams as the municipal employees staged protest.
On Sunday, Delhi Ministers, AAP MLAs and hundreds of party workers hit the streets to clear overflowing garbage dumps.
All the three wings of the MCD -- South, East and North -- are controlled by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
