New Delhi : Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday broke silence over encroachment drive that is being carried out in many parts of the national capital with the help of bulldozer. He condemned the process that has been opted to vacate the places alleged to be illegally occupied.
He blamed Bharatiya Janata Party for a plan to snatch roof from more than 6.3 people living in Delhi's slums. He said that they are not listening to people who are even showing the legal papers of the property. Mr Kejriwal also demanded fresh elections for MCD, promising that he will bring a solution for the situation.
CM Arvind Kejriwal said that he is completely against the bulldozer drive. He claimed that people are smart enough to remove the encroachment when they are asked properly. There is no need to go with bulldozers.
"BJP is saying that they will destroy all encroachment in Delhi; 80 per cent of the national capital comes under encroachment. Are you planning to destroy 80 per cent of Delhi?" CM Kejriwal posted a question on Monday.
Recently, in past few weeks, bulldozers were used to destroy the encroachment in many parts of Delhi.
