During an interaction with 100 RWA members in Model Town Tuesday, Chandni Chowk MP Harsh Vardhan said he could not execute various development works, as the “AAP do not allow it to be executed”.

The meeting was held on the sidelines of Jan Sambark abhiyan with RWAs, which many in the audience also felt was held with an eye on the Lok Sabha elections next year.

Citing the memorandum that various RWAs has submitted listing the area’s problems, Vardhan said, “I know most of you would have cited problems such sewer lines, water and other civic problems. You must be knowing that the power to do most civic works lies with MCDs. But we can’t give them fund directly… Arvind Kejriwal treats MCDs as BJP and not as public institutions. This Delhi government keeps blocking our efforts,” he said.
