'BJP punishing people for voting AAP'

The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday said the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Central govt is punishing people of Delhi for voting AAP.

Launching an attack on BJP-ruled municipal corporations, the AAP called them the “world’s most corrupt” and accused the Central government of “abandoning” the national capital even though it was facing serious sanitation crisis.

Heaps of garbage has piled up in various parts of the city as North and East MCD employees were on a strike for the past 10 days.
 
Accusing the BJP for the civic mess, AAP Delhi convenor said, “The Prime Minister has thousands of crores for Mongolia but it seems he doesn’t have money for safai karamcharis of Mongolpuri.”
“Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan was launched amid much fanfare, but have to say that BJP-led MCD is one of the world’s most corrupt bodies,” he said at a news conference.

The AAP has lined up ward-level rallies to make people aware about BJP’s alleged role in leading city to a civic mess. Party MLAs would run cleanliness campaigns in their respective constituencies, said Pandey.


The AAP leader also demanded an investigation into an alleged “ghost employees” racket in the MCD. “MCDs have 22,000 ghost employees on its rolls. Who takes their salaries?” he said.
“Rs 1,800 crore loan was given to MCD by the Sheila Dikshit’s government. But now, the MCD is demanding more money. Where did the money go?” the AAP Delhi convenor said.

Senior party leader Sanjay Singh also took a dig at BJP-led civic bodies. He said, “Petitions filed by RTI activists show the MCDs have topped the corruption chart. Even as the PM flagged off the Swachch Bharat Abhiyan across the country, it was unfortunate that nothing has been done to improve the health of the sanitation department and the workers under it.”

“The BJP-led MCDs have converted Delhi into a heap of garbage and they must pay the price for this criminal negligence,” he added.
