New Delhi: Acting against illegal constructions, the MCD on Friday demolished alleged unauthorised portions of three properties in north-west Delhi.

During the drive launched by the Building Department of Najafgarh Zone, action was taken against properties in Raj Nagar I and II with the help of police.

With illegal constructions coming under MCD scanner after the east Delhi building collapse, the civic body had yesterday demolished alleged unauthorised floors in nine properties in south Delhi.

The house that collapsed in Lalita Park in Laxmi Nagar last Monday killing 70 people, had two illegal floors.

Following the incident, MCD has faced flak from various quarters, including the Delhi government, for failing to check the growth of unauthorised constructions in the city.

Meanwhile, ruling BJP in MCD today accused opposition Congress of "politicising" the issue of house collapse.

Chairman of Standing Committee Yogender Chandolia said the area where the incident took place is a stronghold of Congress and all the area representatives belong to that party -- whether the councillor, the MLA or the MP.

The "Municipal Corporation staff have to work under their pressure," he alleged.
