AAP Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh asked the upper house to rename the Delhi Municipal Corporation Amendment (MCD) Bill as the “Kejriwal-phobia” bill.

In a swipe at the central government, AAP Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh on Tuesday asked it to rename the bill to reunify Delhi’s three municipal corporations as the “Kejriwal-phobia” bill and alleged that it was brought by the BJP to avoid civic polls.

Speaking in the upper house, he alleged that the Centre wants to take control of the three municipal corporations to stop Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP from coming to power.

“If you don’t have to contest election and run away from the election, then I will suggest again, name this bill the Kejriwal-phobia bill.

This bill will depict the story of your cowardice of you crushing the Constitution.. ending the Election Commission. You have made Delhi the centre of corruption,” Singh alleged.

The Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2022, was piloted in Rajya Sabha by Home Minister Amit Shah and passed by Parliament on Tuesday.
