"We are throwing waste on the road as a way of protest and to attract attention of the government authorities towards our demands of timely payment of salaries and other things," Akhil Bharatiya Safai Mazdoor Congress president Rajendra Mewati said.

The Delhi government on Sunday claimed that the strike by workers of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) had ended, but one of the main unions said the protest was still "going on".

The sanitation workers in the national capital went on an indefinite strike last Friday, demanding, mainly, timely payment of their salaries and regular employment for those who have been working on contract for over a decade.
