The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) accused the BJP- ruled municipal corporations of doing nothing on the ground to contain cases of vector-borne diseases in the national Capital. AAP senior leader and MLA Atishi on Tuesday said that the BJP-ruled MCDs are not leaving even a single opportunity to completely ransack and turn Delhi into a city of doom.
“On the one hand the Kejriwal Government is trying to reach each and every citizen in their anti-dengue campaign but on the other hand the MCDs are not even deputing their staff to check the situation,” she said. Atishi further accused the corporations of committing criminal negligence by not doing anything to control the mosquito menace.
“BJP leaders have put the budget of dealing with dengue-malaria in their own pockets instead of spending them on machines and medications. The MCDs have not bought anti-dengue medication for fogging even till this month. At least one fogging machine is required in every ward, but the MCDs do not even have enough fogging machines. How can one even trust them at this point,” she asked? Reacting to the allegation, Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor said that AAP leaders are in the habit of leveling allegations. “Municipal Corporations are running awareness campaigns, doing fogging and checking the spread of vector-borne diseases while Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is wasting crores of rupees on hoarding campaigns,” he added.
