New Delhi : The AAP will burn effigies of Ravan made of garbage at about 3,500 locations here on Tuesday in protest against the BJP’s ” failure ” in the maintenance of cleanliness in the national capital , the Arvind Kejriwal – led party said .
Addressing a press conference on Monday , Rajinder Nagar MLA Durgesh Pathak said Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP ) leaders and supporters will also hold protests after burning the effigies at the respective locations and demand that Delhi municipal polls be held ” at the earliest “.
When pointed out that the open burning of garbage is illegal and such a protest would add to air pollution , Pathak said that it would only be a ” symbolic ” action .
All three erstwhile municipal corporations were ruled by the BJP till they were unified and renamed as the Municipal Corporation of Delhi ( MCD ) in May .
There was no immediate reaction from the MCD or BJP to the AAP’s charge .
