Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday announced a loan of Rs 551 crore to pay pending salaries of agitating workers of two municipal corporations.

However, the employees refused to call off their strike and said the funds were not a permanent solution to the financial crisis.

The mayors of North and East Delhi municipal corporations had said they would accept Rs 551 crore as a "grant" as the Delhi government was to pay Rs.3,000 crore to the local bodies as per the 3rd Delhi Finance Commission report.
