New Delhi: Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader and MCD in-charge Durgesh Pathak issued a statement on Sunday. In the statement, he accused the BJP of Delhi of making Delhi dirty, in contrast to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan 2.0.
He said that the Prime Minister has called for clean cities, which is a very good idea. But his own party’s Delhi unit BJP is completely failing in the field of cleanliness. His main job is to keep the country’s capital clean but he has done corruption only and only in Delhi. Garbage was not cleared but now the property of Delhiites is being weeping. The Aam Aadmi Party assures the public that in the next election, when the Aam Aadmi Party government is formed in MCD, it will make Delhi garbage free.
Aam Aadmi Party’s MCD in-charge Durgesh Pathak said, “I was listening to the Prime Minister. He has given a message that cleanliness should be promoted in this country. In this episode, he started a campaign. He said that there is a lot of dirt in the cities, there are mountains of garbage in the cities, which need to be cleaned. He held a meeting with all the officials of the state and said that now the cities have to be cleaned. It is a good idea and it should be so but Prime Minister, I want to bring to your attention a few things. Prime Minister, the city where you live, the capital of India, the MCD of Delhi is ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party for the last 15 years. The main job is to keep the country’s capital clean. There should be no water logging anywhere in the capital, whatever garbage is in the capital, that waste should be properly processed. This is his main job.
He said, “Prime Minister, whenever you come back from abroad, you will see that there are three big mountains of garbage standing in Delhi. Located in Okhla. Prime Minister, BJP sitting in Municipal Corporation of Delhi for last 15 years is pretending to clean these mountains of garbage. It is very unfortunate that the leaders of your party have completely failed in the work they are responsible for. The biggest reason for failure is corruption. In 2019, about 280 lakh metric tonnes of garbage was lying on these three mountains. The 2020 report states that MCD is not able to process as much waste as it is coming in. So clearing the old garbage is a long distance, the MCD is not able to clean even the garbage that comes daily.”
Durgesh Pathak said, ‘Prime Minister, we have tried to put before you the biggest thing many times that the mayors, councilors and leaders of your party are doing huge corruption in this process. Based on all the documents, we are telling that the total cost of the machine with which the waste is processed is Rs 17.5 lakh. That machine will be yours at the cost of 17.5 lakhs. But the Delhi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party pays 6 lakhs per month for the same machine of 17 lakhs. Which turned out to be a scam of about 300 crores. They have hired these machines for 2 to 3 years.”
The MCD in-charge said, “Prime Minister, the city you live in, Delhi is the capital of the country. It is the heart of the country. How would you feel when so many big people come to meet you and they have to do it. See these mountains of garbage on the way. These mountains are visible all over Delhi. Today not a single road in Delhi is clean. Every street has garbage. In 15 years, Bharatiya Janata Party has completely ruined Delhi. Today their councilors have only one. There is work left, that is corruption.
He said, “Now only 5-6 months are left. That’s why no Delhiite thinks that now you will be able to do anything. Is engaged in selling municipal property and eating money. Aam Aadmi Party makes a strong promise and assures the people of Delhi, – Arvind Kejriwal does what he says and his party will make Delhi garbage free next year when Aam Aadmi Party will form the government in MCD. We will clean the mountains of garbage and clean the roads of Delhi.
