New Delhi: The BJP on Wednesday said that the city
government has no power to divide the MCD as Delhi does not
enjoy full statehood.
Leader of the House in BJP-ruled MCD Subhash Arya said
Delhi government has failed to realise its constitutional and
legal limitations by proposing trifurcation of the civic body.
He also alleged that the proposed split of MCD is just a
"political gimmick to meet the Chief Minister`s personal
agenda". In the proposed set-up, the Commissioner and Chief
Commissioner would be answerable to the Chief Minister alone
whereas in the present set-up, the Commissioner is answerable
to Mayor and the Standing Committee, he said.
