New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday alleged that the ruling Modi government don’t want Delhi government to do any work and trying tricks to impose the President’s Rule in the national capital.
Referring to ongoing MCD workers protest against their delayed salaries, Kejriwal said “This is a conspiracy by BJP to keep the Delhi government under constant crisis.”
“See how they got President’s Rule imposed in Arunachal Pradesh, They want to create an environment here conducive to imposing President’s Rule in Delhi too,” he added.
Demanding a CBI inquiry into the “salary scam” in the civic bodies, Kejriwal said: “An impression is being created as if Delhi government was responsible for the financial mess in the MCDs, which are being ruled by the BJP for the past 10 years. There are huge scams in the MCDs.”
On Wednesday, he created much anticipation about his press conference by tweeting that he will unveil a "solution" to Delhi’s garbage crisis. His innovative solution, however, failed to match the hype.
He did not offer any permanent solution to the mess but assured workers that the AAP government would extend all monetary support for the next one year after which the three civic bodies will go to polls in 2017.
He announced that the Delhi government will give a loan of Rs 550 crore to the municipal corporations so that they can pay the salaries of all their workers up to 31 January.
Municipality workers, however, refused to call off their strike after the announcement, saying the loan granted by the Delhi government was no solution to the crisis.
