As the elections to Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) inches closer with less than a month left, the Aam Aadmi Party  (AAP) has now planned to display the models of three garbage mountains that exist all over Delhi.

The three landfill sites famously called as dhalaos are at Bahlswa, Ghazipur and Okhla.

Earlier, the BJP led MCD had prepared a plan to eliminate these mountains at landfill sites by June 2022, South MCD by December 2023 and East MCD by December 2024.

The problem of these garbage mountains in the national capital was also mentioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the launch of Swachh Bharat Mission-2. The MCD had already set a target to close the Ghazipur site by December 2024 after the incident of landfill collapse there.

For this, AAP Delhi State Convenor Gopal Rai flagged off a large unit of tempos and carriage vehicles carrying miniature versions of garbage mountains.

Gopal Rai said, “People of Delhi should vote for BJP if they want garbage and filth all around them; but if they want cleanliness and hygiene they must vote for AAP. These vehicles will expose the reality of the three garbage mountains in front of the people of Delhi.”

Rai further said, “Talks regarding MCD elections are picking up momentum across Delhi. Entire Delhi is unanimously raising its voice that they will oust the BJP after 15 years of its reign in MCD which is synonymous with garbage mismanagement. They want to see a ‘Parivartan’ and Delhiites are coming together to make this possible.”

AAP has fielded its candidates on all the 250 seats who have intensified their campaigning through Pad Yatras and Jan Samvads in their wards and are reaching out to the people directly, he stated.

He continued, “These vehicles of garbage mountains carrying the miniature version of garbage mountains will move across Delhi. The idea is to raise awareness among the Delhiites so that they take it upon themselves to bring a change in governance in MCD.”
