New Delhi: BJP on Wednesday slammed the ministers of
Delhi government for issuing "misleading" statements on
regularisation of unauthorised colonies ahead of municipal
elections and alleged the Congress was again going to play
fraud with the people.

"In September 2008, Congress played a drama of
distributing provisional certificates but the reality is that
Delhi government has not regularised a single colony till
date.

Even the initial process of fixing boundaries of the
colonies has not been completed till today by the government,"
Delhi BJP President Vijender Gupta said.

He was addressing a public meeting at the foundation
stone laying ceremony of MCD`s Pratibha Prathmik Vidyalaya to
be constructed at the cost of Rs 6.57 crore at Sant Ravidas
Nagar (Jahangirpuri).

"Delhi`s Urban Development Minister Ashok Walia should
answer whether the central government is to regularise the
colonies and on what grounds he was claiming that all the
process related to regularisation of about 150 colonies has
been completed and forwarded to the central government for
approval?" he said.

Gupta alleged that in view of forthcoming MCD elections,
the ministers have "once again started issuing misleading
statements on regularisation of unauthorised colonies so that
50 lakh people living in these colonies may be convinced that
the Government was very much worried for them".

He also alleged that some Congress leaders were also
involved in the case of fictitious colonies.
"They are adding insult to injury of the people by saying
that the process of regularisation is being completed," Gupta
said, adding BJP strongly opposes "the cheating with 50 lakh
people" and will start movement for securing the rights of the
people living in these colonies.

Delhi Mayor Rajni Abbi and Chairman of MCD Standing
Committee Yogendra Chandolia were present among others.
Chandolia alleged that Delhi Government is blaming MCD to
hide its inefficiency in regularising the unauthorised
colonies.

"MCD takes up issues of regularisation of unauthorised
colonies on priority. It is the Delhi Government that sits on
the issues and doesn`t act promptly," he claimed.
