NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit came down heavily on the Opposition BJP on Monday, while replying to a series of allegations made against her by Delhi BJP chief Vijender Gupta over the past month against the background of municipal elections.  

Dikshit said, “People who stay in glass houses should not make allegations at others.” Launching a veiled attack on Gupta, Dikshit said that Gupta runs an NGO named Sampoorna,  which has received substantial amount of funds from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), where the BJP is in power, and also the Social Welfare Department of the Delhi Government.

“There are many papers, in coming days they may come out and then it will be known,” Dikshit said.

Dikshit said that her government should be given the credit for splitting MCD into three, the world’s second largest municipal corporation which serves 1.65 crore residents of Delhi.

This will take administration closer to the people as there will be one municipal corporation for every 50 lakh people. Dikshit alleged that the BJP had violated the code of conduct, which came into effect on March 5, by announcing the renaming of many streets to please people, regularised 5,000 teachers and sanctioned work worth crores. She said that Congress leaders have complained to the Election Commission.
