AAP government enemy of unauthorised colonies: Arvinder Singh Lovely

New Delhi, Feb 4: A livid Congress on Tuesday hit back at the Delhi Government's recommendation seeking action against former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on the basis of a Lokayaukta order in a case relating to alleged irregularities in regularising unauthorised colonies.

"The colonies were not only issued provisional regularisation certificates, Sheila Dikshit government also carried out developmental work in those colonies," Delhi Congress President Arvinder Singh Lovely told reporters here.

"If these colonies would not have been regularised, development works could not have been carried out there," he said.

Alleging that Arvind Kejriwal is against the development works being carried out in unauthorised colonies, Lovely said, "AAP government is enemy of unauthorised colonies."

"By writing a letter to the President of India in context with the regularisation of these colonies, Arvind Kejriwal has insulted those living in unauthorised colonies," he added.

Opening a new front against outside supporter Congress, Delhi Government yesterday wrote to the President seeking action against Dikshit for alleged irregularities in regularising unauthorised colonies in the city.

The move came after the President sought Delhi government's comments on the report of the Lokayukta in which Justice Manmohan Sarin in November 2013 had ruled that granting of provisional certificate for regularisation of unauthorised colonies in 2008 by Dikshit was done to gain political mileage in the elections.

"If Sheila Dikshit's decisions were for gaining political mileage, Kejriwal is doing nothing different. Delhi government's decision to clear Jan Lokpal bill in an unconstitutional manner is also a political drama," Lovely said.
