Dikshit attacks MCDs

Chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Friday launched a broadside in Delhi Assembly against three BJP-ruled civic bodies accusing them of failing to carry out various developmental works, prompting a sharp reaction from the Opposition party, reports PTI.

During a discussion on unauthorised colonies, Dikshit came down hard on the three
civic bodies accusing them of failing to implement various schemes due their lethargic approach.

“There is no dearth of money in municipal corporations. But there is a lack of intention to work. They do not want to work,” Dikshit said.

BJP members took strong exception to Dikshit’s criticism against the three municipal corporations and accused her of trying to shift the blame on the civic bodies to sheild the government from peoples’ ire for failure in various fronts.

“The chief minister is using the House to criticise the municipal corporations. I condemn the statement of the chief minister,” leader of
the Opposition V K Malhotra said.

Accusing Delhi government of trying to create hurdles in functioning of the civic bodies, Malhotra said the municipal corporations are finding it extremely difficult to carry out developmental activities due to non-release of funds by Dikshit government.
