Ghazipur Landfill in Focus, Kejriwal to Release AAP’s 10 Guarantees; Cong’s 1st List of Candidates Likely Tomorrow


Delhi MCD Election 2022: Chief Minister and AAP national convenor Arvind Kejriwal will launch the party’s 10 guarantees for MCD polls today (November 10) as political race heats up. While top Aam Aadmi Party leaders have been making trips to the Ghazipur landfill with ‘clean Delhi’ motto, their autorickshaw campaign has kicked off too.

Kejriwal chaired a crucial meeting on Wednesday with senior MLAs and office-bearers to review the party’s preparations for the MCD elections.

“Kejriwal will launch AAP’s highly successful ‘Kejriwal Ki 10 Guarantee’ campaign for MCD elections tomorrow. The people of Delhi are actively seeking such a government in MCD that can rid them of BJP’s maladministration, corruption, garbage mountains and mismanagement. BJP has completely wrecked the MCD from inside, they’ve ruined Delhi, spread garbage all over, every gully-mohalla and park is full of garbage. Traders are being harassed and exploited by the BJP. The common man can’t even build his home unless he pays up to BJP’s mafias,” Sisodia told reporters after the meeting on Wednesday.

The 250-ward MCD goes to polls on December 4 and the counting of votes will take place on December 7. The BJP has been in power in the MCD — trifurcated in 2012 into north, south and east corporations and then unified this year — for three straight terms. The high-stake civic polls are largely being seen as a three-way contest between the BJP, the AAP and the Congress.
