New Delhi: BJP on Sunday burnt effigies of Delhi
Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in several areas of the city
demanding her immediate resignation over the CAG report
indicting her for alleged irregularities in several
Commonwealth Games projects.
Launching a "mass movement", the city unit of the party
held demonstrations at over 30 places and burnt her effigies
as part of the protest.
"We will not stop our agitation until the Chief Minister
resigns," said Delhi BJP chief Vijendra Gupta.
In a severe indictment of Dikshit on CWG projects, the
CAG cited her "active involvement" in the grant of a work
incurring a loss of Rs 30 crore while slamming her government
on some projects that led to a loss and escalation of costs of
nearly Rs 500 crore.
The report was tabled in Parliament on Friday after
which the city unit of the BJP had also demanded registration
of a CBI case against Dikshit.
The party will also hold a rally at Ramlila Maidan on
August 9 to demand her dismissal while party workers will
"gherao" Parliament on August 11 to press for her removal,
He added that the effigies of the Chief Minister were
burnt at around 30 places.
