The BJP on Wednesday alleged that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is also a member of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) as he is an MLA from the New Delhi constituency, walked out of the council meeting when asked about pending work in his constituency, especially in the education sector.

BJP’s Kuljeet Chahal, a member of the civic body, said he raised several questions regarding the amount spent by the chief minister from the MLA Local Area Development (MLALAD) funds for the betterment of NDMC schools. “He walked out when I raised matters related to schools and the area,” Chahal claimed.

In a purported video of the incident, Chahal can be seen waving papers in the air, asking Kejriwal about the work done in the constituency, especially in schools. “An RTI says that your MLA fund was not spent. Please answer, Arvind Kejriwal ji. The RTI says that no work has been done for school children in NDMC areas for the past seven years,” Chahal can be heard saying.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) did not respond to Chahal’s allegations.

Meanwhile, the council approved the ‘NDMC Solar Policy-2022’ in its meeting. NDMC Vice-Chairman Satish Upadhyay said the draft of the solar policy 2022 will soon be put in the public domain for public feedback. The policy will be applicable for any solar energy generating system with a capacity of 1 KWph or more.
