New Delhi: As voting is underway for Delhi Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) elections on Sunday, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia appealed to Delhiites to vote in record numbers and to make the city clean.
Addressing media, Sisodia urged the public to choose their government wisely if they want a clean Delhi.
“1.5 crore people are going to vote in Municipal Corporation polls today. I appeal to people to keep this in mind that MCD’s priority is to keep Delhi clean, sanitation issues, landfill, corruption, parking mess, stray animals and to build schools and hospitals among others. Everyone should think before voting and vote for keeping Delhi clean. Vote for a garbage-free Delhi,” he said.

He further said that the BJP has done the delimitation but the people of Delhi have decided to bring the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to the civic body too.
Targeting the BJP, the Deputy Chief Minister said, “BJP has not done anything for Delhi since 15 years, it has failed miserably to work for the people. BJP had nothing to answer, that is why they started negative campaigning.”
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal appealed to people to vote for a party that is honest and would do good work, and not for one that does not work.
“Vote for honest party, vote for decent and good people… Do not vote for those who abuse corruption, hooliganism… Do not vote for those who litter Delhi… Vote for those who will make Delhi shine and clean… Vote for those who work, don’t vote for those who stop working,” he said in a tweet in Hindi.
ईमानदार पार्टी को वोट दें,शरीफ़ और अच्छे लोगों को वोट दें
भ्रष्टाचार, गुंडागर्दी, लफ़ंगई, गाली गलौज करने वालों को वोट ना दें
दिल्ली को कूड़ा करने वालों को वोट ना दें। उन्हें वोट दें जो दिल्ली को चमकाएँगे, साफ़ सुथरा करेंगे
काम करने वालों को वोट दें,काम रोकने वालों को वोट न दें

“Today there is voting to make Delhi clean and beautiful, there is voting to make a corruption-free government in the Municipal Corporation. My appeal to all the Delhiites – do go to cast your vote today to form an honest and working government in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi,” Kejriwal added.
Delhi is voting to elect members to 250 wards in the high-stakes MCD election. As many as 1.45 crore people are eligible to cast their votes. The votes will be counted on December 7, and 1,349 candidates are contesting the election.
