AAP holds protests against MCD Mayors

IANS  |  New Delhi 

The (AAP) on Monday held simultaneous protests against the Mayors of the three Municipal Corporations of (MDC) on the issue of sanitation and vector-borne diseases.

Labour Minister Gopal Rai, who participated in the protests against East Municipal Corporation (EDMC) and North Municipal Corporation (North MCD) Mayors, branded the Bharatiya Janata Party-run MCDs to be an acronym for Malaria, Chikungunya and Dengue.

Addressing the gathering here, he said that the AAP has to fight MCD elections not to become councillors but to make the cleanest and the best city in the nation and the world.

At another protest against South Municipal Corporation (SDMC), AAP leader Dilip Pandey said that the protests against the mayors is just a beginning.

"We will sweep out both the BJP and the Congress in the upcoming MCD elections through our broom," he said.

Earlier in the day, the AAP's national spokesperson Richa Pandey said that the BJP-ruled MCDs are completely exposed.

"Even Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has pulled up the BJP-ruled MCDs for their failure... MCDs have failed to control the spread of diseases in Delhi," she said.
