JAIPUR: The garbage collection vehicles went door-to-door for collecting trash in the city, after a week. Due to the strike owing to the clash between the BVG company, contractors for garbage collection, and the Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC), work was halted.
The tussle regarding payment has been going on between the two parties for years. The company claimed that more than Rs 100 crore is due on JMC, while the officials claimed that the company is not working efficiently enough to be paid the bills presented. There have been times in the past when contractors have stopped working in the city due to this, causing severe problems to the public.
A JMC official while talking to TOI said, “The strike has ended and work was resumed from Friday afternoon. The vehicles went to almost all the areas of the city and if there are places where they mentioned, from Saturday onwards, the work will be resumed. ”
Ramesh Sharma from Raja Park said, “JMC needs to fix their issue of the strike. This situation had arisen in the past as well. We had to keep the garbage accumulated in our houses or had to throw it on the roads. For the past one week, the situation has been difficult. ”
