The fire outbreak at the Ghazipur landfill site triggered a political dispute between the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday.

Delhi BJP chief Virendraa Sachdeva criticized the Arvind Kejriwal-led government, stating that the situation has become unbearable for residents in neighboring areas like Mayur Vihar and Kondli. He accused the government of engaging in corrupt practices, remarking, “the game of corruption is being played here.”

Sachdeva further criticized the AAP government’s failure to fulfill its promise of removing the landfill by December 2023. He emphasized the need to investigate the cause of the fire, alleging corruption as a potential factor. He also pointed out the inefficiency in machinery deployment and called for accountability from Kejriwal.

 

On the other hand, AAP MP Sanjay Singh retaliated against the BJP, branding it as a corrupt party that harbors dishonest leaders. He reassured that MCD officials and the Fire Department are actively addressing the situation and pledged to bring the fire under control soon.

Residents near the landfill expressed distress due to throat and breathing irritation caused by the smoke. They criticized the government’s inaction and urged for prompt resolution of the issue.

The Ghazipur landfill, towering at 65 meters in 2019, has a history of accidents, including a collapse in 2017 that resulted in casualties. In 2022, the landfill experienced multiple fire incidents, with one on March 28 lasting over 50 hours to extinguish.
