BJP launches banner campaign to expose AAP’s ‘misconduct’ in MCD House 

Following clashes in MCD House during mayoral elections, the BJP on Wednesday will display banners on flyovers as well as traffic junctions at 16 locations across the national capital to AAP’s ‘hooliganism’.

The councilors of the two parties engaged in a ugly scuffle inside the House during the oath-taking ceremony on Friday last week, leading to adjournment of the House without electing the mayor and the deputy mayor amid loud protests by AAP councillors over first administering oath to the 10 aldermen.

As part of the campaign, the BJP members will take to the streets on Wednesday from 9am onwards and display these banners on flyovers in 16 locations including ITO, Azadpur, Peeragarhi, Akshardham, Chirag Dilli, Mangolpuri and the Janakpuri District Centre among others, Delhi BJP spokesperson Harish Khurana said. The banners will bear visuals from Friday’s Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) House proceedings.

There is apprehension of traffic chaos in the national capital amid the repair and construction work being undertaken by the Public Works Department near the Ashram flyover.

Notably, the AAP had earlier objected to the ten people appointed as aldermen by Delhi LG VK Saxena to the newly elected MCD, alleging that they are all BJP members. Aldermen do not have voting rights in the mayor and deputy mayor elections and only elected councillors can exercise their franchise.

The BJP councillors retaliated by raising slogans against AAP and its convener Arvind Kejriwal. Amid the chaos, both sides also alleged manhandling by the opposite camp.

The next date will be announced later, BJP councillor Satya Sharma, the presiding officer overseeing the process, said.

In the 25-member body’s MCD elections, AAP won 134 wards, BJP 104, and Congress 9. Aale Mohammad Iqbal, a former instructor at Delhi University, is running for deputy mayor, and Shelly Oberoi is running for mayor in today’s elections as AAP candidate. Rekha Gupta and Kamal Bagri are the candidates for the BJP.

AAP dislodged the BJP from power in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) after three terms lasting 15 years — and took control of the civic body for the first time in the national capital where it has a government.
