    Delhi: Manish Sisodia demands CBI probe into Rs 6,000 crore ‘scam’ in MCD


    Manish Sisodia has written a letter to Lt. Governor
    Demand for CBI probe into MCD scam
    The alleged scam is estimated to be Rs.6000 crore

    New Delhi. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has written a letter to Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena, demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the alleged Rs 6,000 crore scam in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD). Sisodia made this demand by writing a letter to the lieutenant governor on Wednesday. Sisodia also hit out at the lieutenant governor for conducting a “fake inquiry” against the Delhi government led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of “interfering” in government work.

    The deputy chief minister alleged that he informed the lieutenant governor about the corruption in the MCD two months ago, but he did not take any action in the matter. Sisodia said, I would like to draw your attention to my earlier letter regarding the Rs 6,000 crore corruption in MCD. You have not ordered a CBI inquiry into the matter I raised two months ago. But, you are setting a new record by ordering investigation into bogus cases to stop government work but not seeing the corruption in MCD.

    ‘Illegitimate interference in the work of the elected government’

    “You are illegally interfering in the work of the elected government without paying attention to the problems of the people,” Sisodia said in a letter written in Hindi to the lieutenant governor. I request you to order a CBI probe into the MCD scam. Further, he said that the constitution has entrusted the Lieutenant Governor with the responsibility of streamlining the functioning of the Delhi Police, but crime is on the rise in the city. The deputy chief minister also tried to remind Lt Governor Saxena that as the head of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), he has the responsibility to manage it, but its land is being grabbed by mafias. “If you (Lieutenant Governor) show similar interest in preventing rape and reducing crime in Delhi, people will feel relieved in just two to four months,” Sisodia said. Freeing land from mafias can be used for welfare projects like building schools and hospitals.
