NEW DELHI: Some Congress MLAs on Thursday criticised the BJP-ruled MCD for terminating the services of 799 employees of Hardayal Municipal Public Library here.

Raising the issue in the Delhi Assembly, the MLAs said no salary was being paid to these employees despite their names being on the attendance register. They asked under what rules these employees were kept by the MCD all these years. Development Minister A.K. Walia said he would seek a report on the matter before taking necessary action.
