AAP leader tears up notice, says won’t allow slum demolition in Delhi

The Centre is about to issue notices across the national capital and threatening slum dwellers that their houses will be demolished within this month, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) alleged today and said it will move the Supreme Court against it.

However, nothing can be more rubbish than these allegations said the BJP. It condemned the Aam Aadmi Party’s diatribe on demolition of slums around railway land as ordered by the Supreme Court.

AAP spokesperson Raghav Chadha said: “Till Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is alive, no slum dweller in Delhi will be displaced” and asserted that he is making a full proof plan of action for them which will ensure that none of their houses are demolished.

The Supreme Court in a recent order had directed the removal of about 48,000 “jhuggies” (slum houses) along railway tracks in Delhi within three months.

Mr Chadha said the AAP will not allow any slum demolition in Delhi.

“Arvind Kejriwal is making a full proof plan of action for the slum dwellers. This action plan and policy will ensure that no slum dwellers’ houses is demolished and the BJP’s plan to make people homeless will not become successful. If there is a need then we will move the Supreme Court and also fight this battle on the streets. Without giving alternative house and rehabilitation, no slum dwellers’ house will be demolished in Delhi,” he said

“These notices are against humanity and also illegal. These notices are against the basic principle of the Constitution which allows every citizen to have a life with dignity,” he said.

However, Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor said nothing can be more false and condemnable than Mr Chadha’s diatribe.
