With the BJP legislative members now supporting the trifurcation of MCD, the BJP councillors of MCD have been left in a lurch. The clash of interests has already led to a confusing situation where councillors are no longer sure whether they should keep opposing the move or should support it on the lines of their MLAs.
Even mayor Rajni Abbi has stepped down from her earlier stand of complete opposition to the trifurcation and has instead focused on the shortcomings of the present draft, suggesting several modifications.
Abbi on Tuesday said that making population as the basis for trifurcation of the MCD is the latest example to prove that the Delhi government lacks foresightedness and a vision for the citizens of Delhi. She has also demanded a Mayor-in-Council who will head the three corporations.
At a meeting of BJP legislative party, almost all the BJP MLAs had said that the party should not oppose the Bill.
