AAP MLA, Cong councillor spar over civic issues in east Delhi


New Delhi, Sep 12: An AAP MLA and a Congress councillor from east Delhi had a minor face-off today over civic issues of the area. Gandhi Nagar MLA Anil Bajpai claimed that Varyam Kaur, Raghubarpura councillor, who is also the Leader of Opposition in the BJP-led East Delhi Municipal Corporation, has "not been serious" about addressing issues related to sanitation and vector-borne diseases control measures.

"I wanted to go to her office and submit a memorandum, in which I have asked 10 questions related to civic issues in her area, including on sanitation and fogging for mosquito-breeding control.

"We were stopped close to the office by a barricade. The councillor herself came out and met us, and I handed over the memorandum to her there," Bajpai said, while claiming that the police accompanied him when the group went to meet her.

The congress councillor, however, has alleged that the lawmaker's supporter were not local residents. In a statement released by the EDMC, Kaur is quoted as saying that she has asked the AAP MLA to "use RTI and know for himself how much work she has done in her area".

She also alleged, "Though AAP talks so much about dengue, malaria and chikungunya, it has not opened any mohalla clinic in the area."
