'No disruption of public services due to strike'

New Delhi: Delhi government on Tuesday claimed that no public services were disrupted during the day-long general strike called by trade unions as it took pro-active steps to ensure normalcy.

Chief Secretary PK Tripathi said precautionary steps taken by the city government yielded positive results.

"As a result of the pro-active, prompt action and sufficient deployment of staff by the government, its autonomous bodies, Police, DDA, DTC, DJB, MCD and power distribution companies, complete normalcy was maintained in the city during the day in spite of the strike," he said.

There was no disruption in any service including power/water/traffic and with the cooperation of the citizens and all services functioned normally, he claimed.

The city government last night clamped ESMA on power companies including generation and distribution companies though there was no necessity to invoke it in real sense in any part of the city, he said.

The government today kept a close eye on the City apart from monitoring the inputs received at regular intervals during the day, he said.
