If Manoj Tiwari or any other BJP leader has any problem, then he should talk to his central government and LG. Whatever solution comes out, we will welcome it.”

“All the parks in Delhi belong to either DDA or MCD. Two years ago, the councillors of MCD were not allowing Chhath Ghat to be built in our place. When we staged a dharna, they obeyed. After that the councillor of GK-1 got the welding done at the gate of DDA Park so that Chhath Puja could not be celebrated,” he added while talking about BJP’s leader’s attempts. “New Purvanchali people protested. Then welding was broken and Chhath Puja was celebrated. If the Delhi government wants to do some good work, then the BJP puts obstacles in it.
