Aam Aadmi Party MCD Councillors protested at the mayor’s office today against the nexus between building mafia and MCD employees within the Karol Bagh zone. The councillors demanded that the MCD employees involved in this should be suspended at the earliest. The Aam Aadmi Party has started an indefinite protest at the Karol Bagh zone office since Monday.
AAP councillors participating in the protest alleged that from every building across the Karol Bagh area, there are complaints of extortion demands, which has been going on in connivance with the building mafia and MCD employees. The building mafia harass the people of the area by giving notices every day. This whole matter started five months ago, since the Aam Aadmi Party government came to power in the MCD. Before that, BJP was in power in the MCD, so there was no supervision in this matter. The Councillors alleged that BJP corporators used to send money to MCD officials from time to time, due to which the latter did not take action against this issue.
Now that the Aam Aadmi Party government has come to power in the MCD, in a bid to curb all corruption, the AAP Councillors took up this issue with the DC in every meeting. They said, “We asked them to take strict action against this extortion but no action has been taken till date. The public is worried. In order to free the public from corruption, we as councillors have been protesting at the mayor’s office. We demand that action should be taken against all the MCD employees involved in this matter and they should be suspended at the earliest.”
