New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday demanded fresh elections to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), saying it had failed to pay even salaries to its employees.

"Management of an organisation which can't pay salaries to employees doesn't (have the right) to continue," the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader tweeted.

He said the present MCD should be dissolved and fresh elections held.

All the three wings of the MCD - South, East and North are controlled by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

MCD sanitation employees have been protesting for weeks demanding timely payment of salaries but no action has been taken till yet.
