Hitting back at the the BJP, the AAP today alleged that the MCDs was unable to complete two flyovers since last 7 years with its cost escalating and alleged “corruption” as the “real reason” behind the delay.

Addressing a news conference, AAP’s Delhi unit convenor Dilip Pandey said the MCDs has been constructing two flyovers in Bijwasan and Sadar Bazar since last two years.

Pandey alleged the budget of these two flyovers escalated by Rs 85 crores over the years “On one hand there is Aam Aadmi party model of governance where flyovers are being constructed in 10 months with a reduced cost. And on the other these two flyovers are being constructed since last seven years with cost escalation.

“There can be no reason for the delay of these flyovers other than corruption,” Pandey said.

During the protest, BJP councillors raised slogans against the Kejriwal Government and slammed it for calling a two-day special session of Delhi Assembly to discuss the working of civic bodies, saying the move is only intended to “defame” the municipal corporations.

Taking a jibe at Vijender Gupta, Leader of Opposition in Delhi Legislative Assembly, the AAP’s Delhi chief said the BJP leader, who is “so prompt” on approaching the Anti-Corruption Branch against AAP MLAs and Delhi government, should also approach the agency to probe the alleged corruption in the civic bodies.
