Delhi BJP Chairman Adesh Gupta on Thursday accused Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of ‘skipping’ crucial NDMC meetings and being ‘indifferent’ to the welfare of people in his Assembly constituency from New Delhi.
No immediate reaction to Gupta’s accusation was available from the ruling Aam Aadmi party.
In a press conference, Gupta claimed Kejriwal only attended one of 21 Jan Suvidha meetings held in his constituency. It shows his “indifference” to his constituents, he charged.
The Delhi BJP chairman claimed that the chief minister was absent from four New Delhi City Council (NDMC) meetings.
The water supply of major hospitals run by the Center in the NDMC area has been cut by the Delhi government. “Previously, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) provided 124 MLD of water to these hospitals, which has now been reduced to 75 MLD,” he alleged.
At an NDMC meeting on Wednesday, NDMC member and Delhi BJP General Secretary Kuljeet Chahal had proposed a resolution to declare Kejriwal’s seat on the council “vacant”, citing his absence from four consecutive meetings without permission.
The resolution was proposed at the civic body’s board meeting. Kejriwal is a member of NDMC as an MP for New Delhi. The resolution cited his absence from board meetings from December 2021 to March 2022.
“The council may recommend to the central government that the seat of Arvind Kejriwal as a member of the council may be declared vacant with the recommendation to initiate other necessary measures in accordance with the provisions contained in the NDMC Act 1994”, he added.
According to Chahal, the issue will be discussed at the next council meeting.
