NEW DELHI: Delhi Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal blew the poll trumpet for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) on Thursday and launched a vicious attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over increasing waste at the Ghazipur landfill in national capital.
Stating that for the past 15 years the BJP has ruled Nagar Nigam and given Delhi three mountains of garbage, Kejriwal urged people to vote for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the next MCD surveys.
“Protest as much as you want, but remember Kejriwal will build schools, hospitals, provide you with electricity. I want to urge people, especially BJP supporters to forget their party and vote for me once for Delhi cleanup. If I don’t clean Delhi. in the next five years, don’t vote for me, ā€¯Kejriwal said.


The AAP coordinator also said that the BJP will create another 16 mountains of such garbage because the Ghazipur landfill has become unstable and no more garbage can be added.
Reacting to the protest against his visits, Kejriwal said that (BJP) can come to visit Delhi schools and Mohalla clinics and will not object, adding: “This year’s survey (MCD) will cover the issue of garbage and cleaning .”
He also challenged the BJP to show good work it had done during its 15 years of government in civic bodies.
“You are ashamed of what you have done in 15 years. This is not a mountain of garbage, but a mountain of corruption. I want to challenge the BJP, its leaders to show a job that MCD has done in 15 years. If you want to know What Kejriwal has been doing work for the past five years, go ask the people of Delhi. They will tell you, “Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal further said that for the past 15 years the BJP has spent Rs 2 lakh crore and asked where the money went. “It was the money of the people of Delhi. Of the crore of Rs 2 lakh, the government of Delhi had given a crore of Rs 1 lakh. The central government did not give a cent.”
I want to ask the Interior Minister how much funds have been given to Delhi, Kejriwal said, and added: “They only abused the people of Delhi. I want to ask the mothers in Delhi, will they tolerate their child being mistreated?”
Polls by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) are expected to be held in late 2022 or early next year. However, there has been no formal announcement regarding the dates.
In 2017, the BJP swept away civic body polls, bagging 181 districts into the former municipal corporations of south, north and east Delhi.
The Center unified the three municipal corporations this year into the Municipal Corporation of Delhi.
