The war of words has intensified with the Centre last month deciding to provide property ownership rights to the residents of unauthorised colonies.
NEW DELHI: Senior Delhi BJP leader Vijender Gupta on Tuesday accused the ruling AAP of misleading people on the issue of regularisation of unauthorised colonies and claimed boundaries of around 400 such colonies have already been fixed.
Mr Gupta made the allegation after the AAP earlier termed a decision of the Centre to give ownership rights to 40 lakh people living in unauthorised colonies a “poll gimmick”, asserting that the BJP-led Centre has no intention of fulfilling its promise to regularise unauthorised colonies in the city. The two parties have been sniping at each other on the regularisation of unauthorised colonies ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls due early next year. The war of words has intensified with the Centre last month deciding to provide property ownership rights to the residents of unauthorised colonies.
Mr Gupta, the Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly, asserted that the Kejriwal government has done nothing to regularise the unauthorised colonies. “Now as the Delhi Legislative Assembly elections are nearing, they are misleading the people living in these 1,731 unauthorised colonies,” he alleged.
