New Delhi: Continuing their agitation against the Arvind Kejriwal-led government, MCD workers on Saturday staged protest outside Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel's residence in the national capital.

For the past few days, scores of municipal sanitation workers have been protesting in Delhi demanding "immediate" release of funds for their salaries.

Besides salaries, the employees are seeking payment of arrears, regularisation of contract-based employees and unification of the three corporations.

Workers attached to East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) had gone on strike making similar demands in October last year. But the strike was called off in the wake of a High Court order.

Meanwhile, senior doctors, nurses, paramedical staff working under the three municipal corporations as well as private hospitals have announced to go on strike in solidarity with the sanitation workers' agitation in the national capital.
