‘Anti-Dalit’: AAP, BJP trade allegations over postponement of mayoral polls in Delhi

The AAP and BJP on Friday traded allegations over the postponement of mayoral polls, accusing each other of being anti-Dalit, following an uproar in the MCD House meeting that was adjourned amid heavy sloganeering.

Polls to elect the mayor and deputy mayor were postponed late Thursday night due to the non-appointment of the presiding officer for the elections. The third term of the mayoral polls is reserved for a Dalit candidate.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) House session witnessed an uproar over the postponement of the mayoral elections that were slated to be held on Friday, with both AAP and BJP councillors raising slogans against each other before the proceedings of the House began.

BJP councillors surrounded the mayor’s seat and raised slogans demanding the presence of Mayor Shelly Oberoi who was running late for the meeting.
