    AAP govt out to 'destroy' MCD, says Arya
    South Delhi Mayor Subhash Arya today accused Delhi government of trying to "destroy" the functioning of corporations by not releasing the grants due to them and said it was hampering the payment of salaries and implementation of projects. "The state government is not implementing the Delhi Finance Commission's recommendations and halting the growth of the corporation by stopping funds," Arya alleged, adding that, as per the rules, corporations have their own share in the funds released by the Centre. The erstwhile unified Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) was trifurcated into North, South and East corporations in 2012, and three civic bodies, especially NDMC and EDMC, have been debt-ridden since then. All the three civic bodies are at present led by BJP. (Courtesy: MCD) (06/06/2015)

It said use of institutional space and symbols without permission amounts to "indiscipline" and the institution has every right to question students. 'Organiser' also said educational campuses are "afflicted with red ideology" and forums like Ambedkar Periyar Study Circle (APSC) in IIT-Madras are used for "propagating anti-Hindu and anti-Bharat divisive ideology", which Ambedkar would never have approved.
