On Monday, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said in a press conference that this will be the “biggest destruction” after independence and render63 lakh people homeless. He had also said that 80 percent of the city is unplanned and unauthorised, so will the BJP destroy 80 percent of Delhi.

The way BJP is destroying people’s houses and shops in Delhi, it is not right. Bulldozers can run on the shops or houses of 63 lakh people. This will be the biggest destruction of independent India,” the Delhi chief minister said.

He also claimed that the BJP planned to demolish all of Delhi’s unauthorised colonies.

The Delhi chief minister had warned that the homes and shops of more than 6.3 million will be vulnerable under the parameters being applied. He also asked AAP MLAs to prepare to go to jail in order to protect people from the demolition drives.

“The BJP’s bulldozer politics, its flagrant misuse of power and its ‘dadagiri’ and hooliganism will no longer be tolerated,” Kejriwal said.
