The attack came after Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) of Delhi government launched a probe into an app-based premium bus service on a complaint of BJP legislator and Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta, who alleged the AAP government wanted to launch the scheme to benefit a Gurgaon-based private bus aggregator.
The scheme was red-flagged by the Lt Governor on the ground that his approval was not taken before its launch.
“LG n Modi Govt aggressively start creating hurdles in Del Govt, almost in every file. Modiji bhi LG Ke Kandhe Par Rakh Kar Bandhukh Chalate hain,” Arvind Kejriwal said in a tweet.
The premium bus service was scheduled to be launched yesterday with registration of buses under the scheme through which people can book their seats on the lines of app-based cab aggregators in the national capital.
A senior Delhi government official alleged that a conspiracy is being “hatched” to delay the scheme under which people would be able to book their seats in buses through their smartphones on the lines of app-based taxi services in the national capital.
Only air-conditioned buses would ply under the scheme according to which one bus aggregator will have to run at lease 50 vehicles to get a licence from Delhi government’s Transport Department.
