New Delhi:

BJP councillors and mayors of the three municipal corporations will sit on a symbolic hunger strike on Tuesday at the Jantar Mantar here over alleged “denial” of funds by the AAP-led Delhi government.

Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay said that he would join the strike to support the “fight” for the “rightful claim” of funds by the three civic bodies.

BJP councillors and mayors of the corporations will sit on a symbolic hunger strike on January 19 to protest the denial of “funds” to the civic bodies by the Delhi government, Upadhyay said in a statement.

“BJP strongly condemns Kejriwal government for misleading the people of Delhi regarding municipal funds,” he alleged, adding, “the party will thoroughly expose the government and ensure that municipal bodies get proper funds so that they can provide best civic services to the people of Delhi” he said.
