Delhi BJP President, Satish Upadhyay, on Tuesday led a day-long dharna at Jantar Mantar in support of the Municipal leaders and councillor’s fast, demanding funds for the Corporations so that they can provide proper civic amenities.
Upadhyay and the three Mayors demanded that the Delhi government should immediately release all funds as per the Third Delhi Finance Corporation (DFC) recommendations and implementation of the 4th DFC recommendations.
Addressing the protesters, Upadhyay said, "It is tragic that in the national capital, civic facilities are crippled due to lack of funds as the Delhi government is playing dirty politics." He said Delhi BJP would go all out to expose the "farce nature of Kejriwal government". Meanwhile, SDMC Mayor, Subhash Arya said,"In my four decades of career as public representative, I have never seen a state government as biased towards municipal corporations.
