New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused the BJP-led central government of using force and bullying to prevent MCD elections in the city and asserted that the AAP would go to court to hold the elections on time.
Speaking in the Delhi Assembly on the second day of the monsoon session, Kejriwal claimed that there was talk that Delhi would be transformed into a full-fledged union territory and no elections would be held thereafter.
“They (Center) are using force and bullying to prevent MCD elections. We have to go to court to hold the MCD elections on time and we will do it, ”Mr Kejriwal said during a discussion.
After his speech, Mr Kejriwal told reporters that during the exercise of consolidating the three MCDs, the Center had assured that a demarcation commission would be set up, followed by elections.
“It has been more than a month and a half since the MCD was amalgamated, but they have not set up a delimitation commission. They do not want elections. This is against democracy. “We will go to court if necessary,” he told reporters.
