BJP-ruled MCDs have not paid for cow shelters in last 3 years: AAP

Friday, 31 July 2020 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) alleged the BJP ruled municipal Corporations have not paid a single rupee for the cow shelters in the last three years resulting in suffering to nearly 25,000 cattle in Delhi due to scarcity of food.

Party’s ‘Public Account Committee’ member Durgesh Pathak on Thursday said that the COVID pandemic has devastated the lives of the citizens of Delhi and similarly, this disastrous pandemic has brought a lot of hardships for the animals.

According to the rules, the Delhi government pays Rs 20 per day per cow and the same money should be given by the BJP-ruled MCDs. “This amounts to Rs 10-11 crores for the Delhi government per year and the same amount should be paid by the MCDs of Delhi. The AAP government has always paid this money on time,” he said.

In 2019-20, the government paid around Rs 11 crore, in 2018-19, nearly Rs 10.5 crore was paid and the same amount was paid on 2017-18 but in the last three years, the BJP ruled MCDs have not paid single rupee for the cow shelters in the last 3 years and Rs.30 crores is pending from them, he said.
