Delhi MCD Staff Can't Do ''Gundagardi'' In Name Of Protest: High Court
The Delhi High Court Thursday said that while the sanitation employees and unions have a right to protest against non-payment of salaries, they cannot create nuisance or do ''gundagardi'' by throwing garbage on roads and restrain staff from working.
A bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli said that such conduct will not be spared and stern action will be taken against the erring union leaders and their members.
The MCD Swachhata Karamchari Union leaders, who gave the strike call, appeared before the court and assured it that they will not resort to any such conduct in the future.
"We have impressed upon the president and secretary of the union that though they are entitled to exercise their rights as provided by the law to raise their grievances, they do not have a right to create nuisance and take law into their hands by spilling garbage on roads and restraining others from performing their duties," the bench said.
