Bhardwaj said the Kejriwal government paid Rs 221.56 crore to the MCD for dengue-malaria management in the last five years but it spent only Rs 141.45 crore.
“It is deliberately not taking action against dengue by lying about not having funds. It is astonishing to see BJP leaders make false claims about lack of funds even when they’re not spending the funds given to them,” he said.https://images.indianexpress.com/2020/08/1x1.png
The people of Delhi have now realised that the BJP is failing at running the corporation and they want to bring freedom to the MCD in the next elections, he said.
Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor hit back and said that it was shocking to see Saurabh Bhardwaj indulging in dirty allegation politics over the spread of dengue in November.
He said that for the last several years the Delhi government has been cutting on health plan funds of municipal corporations, weakening their fight against mosquito bite diseases but spending lavishly on publicity.
“In 2019 and 2020, when dengue cases were negligible, AAP gave the credit of controlling it to the CM’s campaign but when in 2021 it saw a brief surge, the AAP is now shamelessly passing the blame on the MCDs,” he said.Delhi News
