BJP made Delhi garbage capital of India, Ghazipur landfill will soon be taller than Taj Mahal: CM Kejriwal

Prime News, Nation, (New Delhi), January 10:-Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday accused the BJP and the civic bodies administered by it of making Delhi the “garbage capital of India” and claimed that the Ghazipur landfill will soon cross the height of Taj Mahal.

Addressing a press conference, Kejriwal said, “The BJP and the MCD have made Delhi the garbage capital of India, with open ‘dhalaos’ (community dustbins) and garbage dumped in every nook and corner of the city.”

It a matter of shame for Delhi that it is at the bottom of the rankings in the Swachh Bharat Mission, Kejriwal said while highlighting the inconvenience that the garbage dump in Ghazipur is causing to the people of the city.

Kejriwal presented the MCD report card to the media, comparing the statistics of various sectors under the civic bodies and the Delhi government, and highlighting the loopholes in the workings of the corporations across education, healthcare, sanitation, and other significant domains.

He said there are two models of governance in front of the people of Delhi, and they have to decide one is right for the city and the nation.

“First, I would like to put forth a difference in the education levels in primary schools of the MCD as well as the Delhi government senior secondary schools. On one hand, the MCD has shut down 109 schools in the last nine years, while on the other the Delhi government has opened 20,000 new classrooms in its schools in the last five years,” he said.

The civic bodies have the most corrupt officials, Kejriwal alleged while describing the MCD as ‘Most Corrupt Department’.

“And I am not the only. Also, I am not saying this without any relevance or proof,” he said.
