AAP – The new Indian express
NEW DELHI: AAP chief spokesperson and MPP Saurabh Bhardwaj alleged on Friday that the BJP ruled that the North Delhi Municipal Corporation was selling properties worth crore to line their pockets.
He said the MCD North’s 2021-22 budget was aimed at making Rs 600 crore by selling assets, but BJP advisers raised it to Rs 935 crore.
“This year’s budget had a target of Rs 400 crore, BJP advisers have dramatically increased it to Rs 1,851 crore. Under their corrupt regime, many corporate assets are sold for only 20 percent of their market value. The AAP condemns this end of season sale organized by the BJP in its last days within the municipal corporation ”, declared Bhardwaj.
Bhardwaj said: “If BJP leaders say the move will bring in Rs 935 crore, that means they are selling properties worth at least Rs 4,000-5,000 crore. They have plotted to withdraw to the company of very high value assets for the benefit of private actors. “
However, the mayor of North MCD, Raja Iqbal Singh, did not respond to the allegations and questions. Meanwhile, Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor said: “Bhardwaj’s statement is a blatant lie because in fact at yesterday’s meeting the budget for the following year 2022- 23 was presented and not for the current year 2021-22.
The year after 2022-2023 will by and large be effective after the municipal elections of April 2022. ”He said:“ The expected income of Rs 935 crore will not only come from the sale of properties, but from several other leaders mentioned in budget discussions. ”
