Delhi BJP leader Vijender Gupta has alleged a
“scam” in hiring of private security agencies by the Delhi
government, a charge rubbished by the government.

“We do not respond to such baseless and ridiculous
charges,” said a senior government official.

However, Gupta, in a statement, alleged that the government
engaged private firms for providing security to hospitals on “nomination
basis” without calling any tender and in “violation” of Union
government norms in this regard.
