BJP-run MCDs have failed Swachh Bharat Abhiyan: Satyendar Jain

New Delhi, Sep 26 (IANS) Blaming civic bodies for the poor sanitation conditions of Delhi, Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Satyendar Jain said on Monday that the BJP-run municipal corporations have “miserably failed” Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Jain added that the three municipal corporations do nothing “except harassing people” and “making money” through corruption.

“The three MCDs, which are controlled by the BJP, have miserably failed Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and have shown a mirror to the BJP, apart from severely hurting the image of the nation,” he said.

Jain’s remarks come after his meeting Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on Monday on the cleanliness issue.

“The sanitation condition of Delhi is very bad and Delhi is burdened with garbage. Both LG and I are worried about the state of affairs,” Jain said after the meeting.

He said that in the wake of a serious spike in the number of vector-borne diseases in the city, Lt. Governor had ordered the MCDs to focus on cleanliness for at least one month.

“LG has also directed them to clean ‘dhalaos’ twice a day, which the MCDs, so far, claim to clean every day,” Jain said.

“Have MCDs done any work except making money? They just take bribes and do nothing else. If you make a list of things done by the MCDs, you will realise that they only harass people and make money from them,” he said.

Last week, Aam Aadmi Party had launched “Spot the Kachra (garbage)” social media campaign to put pressure on the MCDs on the sanitation issue.
