AAP, BJP launch cleanliness drive in Delhi

New Delhi, June 13 (IANS) A day after protesting sanitation workers of East and North Delhi called off their strike over non-payment of salaries, which had left heaps of garbage piled up on the streets, the Aam Aadmi Party and the BJP came out with brooms and launched a cleanliness drive on Saturday.

Blaming each other for the garbage crisis in the city, leaders of both the parties began to clean the city.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia along with AAP leaders Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and Alka Lamba took part in the cleanliness drive.

Sisodia was seen cleaning the garbage littering the streets in his constituency Patparganj.

BJP Delhi chief Satish Upadhyay also took part in the cleaning up near Akshardham. He blamed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the garbage mess.

Upadhyay said: “We have a target of 48 hours to clean Delhi.”

Attacking the BJP and the AAP, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh blamed both AAP leader Kejriwal and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said they are “masters of nautanki”.

“AAP starts cleanliness drive after sanitation workers strike has been called off. Photo ops for AAP. Modi and Kejriwal are masters of nautanki,” tweeted Singh.

Former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit said such a thing was “never witnessed” during the Congress rule.

“The problem has been created by the AAP. It is their responsibility to keep Delhi clean. For the 15 years, the Congress ruled Delhi never did MCD workers not get their salaries, a proper budget was made every year,” she said.
