The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) which was working on installation of CCTV cameras for the last two years has stopped the task following setting up of a new panel by the Lieutenant Governor, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claimed today.
"NDMC was installing CCTV cameras in residential colonies for last 2 yrs. In view of LG's committee, NDMC has also stopped further installation of cameras. Extremely unfortunate. Whatever gud work was gng on, all stopped. Dirty politics wid women safety (sic)," Kejriwal, who is also a member of NDMC, tweeted.
The fight between the AAP government and the L-G, over installing CCTV cameras in Delhi intensified today as Kejriwal along with his cabinet ministers and MLAs sat on a 'dharna' near the L-G office urging him "not to stall" the project under "pressure from the BJP".
Yesterday, Baijal wrote to Kejriwal, saying it was "unfortunate" that the public and media were being "misled" on the issue "repeatedly and deliberately".
Hours after Baijal's letter, Kejriwal wrote back to the L-G, seeking to know why he was "politicising" the issue of women safety.
Kejriwal is alleging that Baijal had set up the committee "arbitrarily", bypassing the elected government and sought to know why he was "violating" the Constitution.
