New Delhi: The BJP and the Congress blamed each other besides charging the ruling AAP for sealing drive at west Delhi’s Mayapuri on Saturday which witnessed violent protest by locals resulting in use of force by police.

Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit condemned use of force by police in Mayapuri, blaming the Centre and the MCD, both ruled by the BJP, for sealing.

“There was collusion of the Centre and the MCD in sealing at Mayapuri. Congress condemns brutal lathicharge on the people,” she said.

Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari lodged a complaint  against the AAP, with Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Delhi alleging sealing drive was being conducted selectively during imposition of model code of conduct. He urged the poll panel for intervention to halt it.  

“Arvind Kejriwal who is blaming the Centre and criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi is exposed today as the Delhi Pollution Control Committee and local SDM, who conducted the sealing in Mayapuri, come under Delhi government,” Tiwari said.  

He also said the AAP and Congress did not sincerely oppose the sealing drive and held them responsible for the incident at Mayapuri. He claimed that BJP workers along with locals protested against sealing as it was conducted on the day of Ram Navami.
