With the AAP turning the issue of landfill sites into a poll plank ahead of the municipal election in Delhi, BJP MP Gautam Gambhir has hit out at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, asking where was he for the last eight years when it came to finding a solution for the massive garbage dump in Ghazipur.

The Ghazipur landfill site is a giant garbage dump in east Delhi. Talking to PTI, Gambhir, who represents the East Delhi constituency in the Lok Sabha, blamed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for what he described as ”a dismal state” of the national capital. He said the work done at the Ghazipur landfill site is an example of how a BJP-led MCD can ”make a difference”.

The cricketer-turned-politician said in the last eight years, ”we have only heard the Delhi chief minister blame the Centre for everything, but no one asked him what is his responsibility as the chief minister”.

He should come out and speak, Gambhir added. The people of Delhi can see it for themselves what the Ghazipur landfill site was three years ago and what has happened to it now. The height has gone down by at least 50 feet, he claimed.The East Delhi MP also questioned the chief minister’s visit to the site after eight years.
