Every MLA has been given the prerogative to decide on the location on installation of these CCTVs in consultation with the residents. However, this right has been snatched away from the BJP representatives, said Vijender Gupta.
New Delhi: The BJP legislators Vijender Gupta and O P Sharma on Tuesday alleged that they were marshalled out of the Delhi assembly after raising the issue of discrimination by the Delhi government in distributing funds for development works in areas represented by the opposition MLAs.
“The state government has been acting with malice against the assembly constituencies which have BJP representatives. In the assembly, the BJP MLAs presented facts on disbursement of funds meant for installation of CCTV cameras in all assembly constituencies. The government has spent Rs 400 crore for procurement of 1.40 lakh CCTV cameras. In every constituency, it spent Rs 5.71 crore for procuring 2000 CCTV cameras. However, the PWD minister has not given permission to install 16000 CCTV cameras meant for eight assembly constituencies that have elected BJP MLAs,” Gupta said.
Gupta said that every MLA has been given the prerogative to decide on the location on installation of these CCTVs in consultation with the residents. However, this right has been snatched away from the BJP representatives. Instead of answering opposition question, government is suppressing their voices by marshalling them out.
“AAP government is murdering democracy, not only in the assembly but also outside of it by practicing partiality in disbursement of funds, which is not their personal property but taxpayers’ money,” he said.
“BJP MLAs would meet LG regarding systematic discrimination being practiced by the AAP government and would stage a dharna if the Delhi government refused to mend its way and continue to trample upon the rights of people of Delhi,” the BJP MLA added.
