Delhi Civic Body To Work Under Centre Not Delhi Government: BJP

Delhi BJP on Thursday said according to the amended Delhi Municipal Corporation (DMC) Act, the Delhi civic body now under the Centre and not under the Delhi government. This comes just a fews days after the declaration of MCD polls results in which AAP won landslide victory leaving BJP far behind.

AAP took over the municipal corporation after 15-years of ruling by BJP. The Arvind Kejriwal’s party won by 134 seats out of total 250 leaving BJP ar just 104.

The MCD has no accountability towards the Vidhan Sabha or Delhi government, said the Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor.

“After the amendment in the Delhi Municipal Corporation Act, the MCD is now under the Central Government or its representative Lieutenant Governor. The civic body is not accountable towards the Delhi government or the Legislative Assembly,” he said in a statement.

This comes a day after AAP MLA Saurabh Bhardwaj, who heads the Delhi Assembly committee on Municipal Corporation of Delhi made an announcement that the pandel members will visit the country’s cleanest cities to see their soli waste management, sanitation and segregation models.

“This announcement clearly shows that Bhardwaj and his fellow MLAs have the intention to interfere in the corporation’s work and will also clash with their own councillors who have a majority in the newly formed municipal corporation,” said the BJP spokesperson.

It would be much better if the AAP MLA’s keep their focus on completing the works for public under the departemts of Delhi government such as Food and Civil Supplies, PWD and Jal Board among others.
