Rs 2,000 crore mega-pension MCD scam is a tip of the iceberg

Around Rs 2,000 crore mega pension scam in the MCDs, which has been continuing since almost two decades is a tip of the iceberg of the World’s Most Corrupt Department presided over by the BJP and ably supported by the Congress.

It is a matter of extreme shame that the BJP-ruled MCDs are trying to hush up the mega scam exposed by none other than the Chief Auditor of Municipal Accounts.

The Aam Aadmi Party demands a CBI inquiry into the mega-pension scam and will take recourse to all legal options, including filing a petition in the appropriate court for a probe into this fraud committed on taxpayers money.

AAP assures the people of Delhi that after two months when elections of MCDs are held, the party will probe all acts of corruption and mismanagement in the MCDs which have ruined the basic sanitation and hygiene conditions of the national capital.

Addressing the media on the issue, Aam Aadmi Party leader and minister in the Delhi government Kapil Mishra said ;“It is an extremely serious issue that poor sanitation workers in the MCDs are politically and economically exploited. On the other hand, a scam went on unchecked for nearly two decades in the undivided MCD and later on even after trifurcation.”

Kapil Mishra said the Aam Aadmi Party has consistently maintained that the MCDs are a den of corruption and are monumentally mismanaged financially.

“Take the example of the current financial year 2016-17, Delhi government has so far released Rs 1102 crore to the North MCD and Rs 609 crore to the east MCD under non-planned head, which is primarily for payment of salaries,” Mishra said.

“In case this pension scam of around Rs 2,000 crore had been prevented in the MCD all these years, all three MCDs would have comfortably paid the salaries of all their employees from Group A to D for a complete year, without having to look here and there,” Mishra said.   

Since AAP government assumed office in February 2015, more than sufficient funds have been provided to the MCDs and not a penny has been deducted from the outstanding loan of more than Rs 6,000 crore from these civic bodies.
