New Delhi: The ruling AAP on Tuesday asked the Municipal Corporations of Delhi to apologise to the people of the capital for their “inability” to run schools and hospitals.
AAP leader Dilip Pandey told a media conference that the BJP-run MCDs have “deceived” the citizens of Delhi under its campaign slogan — ‘Naye Chehre Nayi Udaan’.
“The BJP that talks of good governance is unable to manage such a small-level body. MCDs run by them have ruined the condition of schools and hospitals.”
He noted that the Delhi High Court on February 23 suggested to the civic bodies to hand over their schools to the AAP government if they cannot pay the wages of the teachers.
“The salary of teachers and other employees has not been disbursed for past three-four months. The MCDs are running away from their responsibility by asking the Centre to take over their hospitals.”
“You should apologise to the people of Delhi for this,” said Pandey.
