AAP govt, BJP-led MCDs 'stalling' civic work in Delhi: Goel

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The "political competitiveness" between the AAP-led and the ruling in the municipal corporations is leading to "stalling" of civic work in the city, leader in the NDMC Goel today alleged.

At a press conference here, he also said the execution of municipal projects was "getting delayed" as standing committees and other panels of the three corporations have not been constituted, owing to the Kejriwal "not notifying" the newly-drawn municipal zones of the city.

Goel today also wrote to Lt Governor Anil Baijal urging him to "direct" the city to "notify without delay" the zones so that elections for the different panels could be held.

"The civic work in is getting stalled and the reason behind it is the political competitiveness between the AAP-led government and the ruling in the three corporations," he wrote in the letter to the Lt Governor.

The Delhi government for "unknown reasons has not notified" the zones, he said.

The senior leader in the letter to Baijal, also appealed to him to "direct the leaders in the civic bodies to constitute all civic-approved committees, special or ad hoc, as soon as possible".

"And, till these committees are not formed, a meeting of the municipal house be held every week," Goel wrote.

The erstwhile Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) was trifurcated in 2012 into North, South and East Delhi Municipal Corporations or NDMC, SDMC and EDMC.

The BJP has been ruling the corporations for the last 10 years.
