GULBARGA: Contractors who have leased their tractors to the Gulbarga City Corporation to collect garbage went on strike on Thursday demanding payment of their dues of Rs 1.40 crore.

The contractors parked their tractors in front of the administrative building of the corporation and staged a dharna demanding the release of the payment, which has been pending for two years.

Later, corporation officials held talks with the contractors and agreed to release 50 per cent of the pending dues immediately and appealed to them to end their strike. Based on the assurance the contractors withdrew their stir.
