New Delhi: Facing renewed attack on the
alleged irregularities in Commonwealth Games projects, Delhi
Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Thursday accused BJP of levelling
"unfounded and unproven" charges with an eye on the MCD polls.
She said the Opposition was trying "show it
(administration) in a bad light" to destabilise the city
"The Opposition is scrambling to prove its credibility
ahead of the MCD polls. They are seeking leverage by levelling
a series of unfounded and unproven corruption charges against
us," Dikshit said.
"They created a ruckus in the recently concluded session
only with the intention of showing the government in a bad
light and to destabilise it. The charges they accused us of
were nothing but a pack of lies," she claimed.
The Chief Minister`s remarks came on a day when BJP
stepped up attack on her demanding action against her for
alleged corruption in the Commonwealth Games held here in
Responding to Opposition leader Vijay Kumar Malhotra`s
allegations that her government was making fraudulent
announcements to misguide people ahead of MCD polls, she said
people themselves could judge her government by noting the
developments it had brought.
"People themselves can see the development that has been
brought about in Delhi. It has grown and evolved into a world
class city now. The Opposition is just looking for loopholes
to belittle us," she said.
