We the Indians ignore basics in almost all acts of ours is well illustrated by the dirty Delhi. The national capital, with exception of NDMC area, looks like one huge garbage dump. Whether it is politics are deep game plan of various political players is of little concern of the public at large. What they need is basic public hygiene.

Employees of Delhi's three civic bodies - North Delhi Municipal Corporation, South Delhi Municipal Corporation and East Delhi Municipal Corporation - have been protesting the non-payment of salaries for the past few months.
To end the strike Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government announced a loan of Rs 551 crore for payment of salaries. But the agitating MCD employees have refused to call off their strike.
Apart from this release of funds the Delhi government of Aam Aadmi Party has done nothing substantial. Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, is meeting lt governor Najeeb Jung and mayors today.
