The Bharatiya Janata Party has slammed the Congress for “ignoring the development of the Walled City”, following the collapse of a building in North Delhi on Wednesday.

Delhi BJP president Vijay Goel, who visited the site, said there was no point in indulging in a blame game as the Delhi Government always puts the blame on the municipal corporations.

Mr. Goel, who has represented Chandni Chowk in the Lok Sabha twice, said: “The Government has ignored the redevelopment of Chandni Chowk, rendering thousands of dilapidated buildings dangerous for the residents, shopkeepers, traders and visitors in the area. Even the basic civic amenities have not been provided there.” The party termed the Shahjahanabad Re-development Corporation a “powerless” and “toothless body”.
