Delhi demolition drive: Several parts in the national capital have seen anti-encroachment drive in the last few days.
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday took an aim at the BJP over the anti-encroachment drive in the national capital by the civic body. “The way BJP is destroying people’s houses and shops in Delhi, it is not right. Bulldozers can run on the shops or houses of 63 lakh people. This will be the biggest destruction of independent India,” he said in a video address.
The Aam Aadmi Party government in the national capital and the BJP, which rules the civic body in the city, have been trading charges over bulldozers in Delhi amid protests. Last week, demonstrations erupted in Shaheen Bagh, once at the heart of anti-citizenship law protests, as the civic body reached with bulldozers to knock down illegal structures.
In the days that followed, New Friends Colony, Dwarka and several other parts saw similar scenes.
