New Delhi : Manoj Tiwari on Monday claimed that Rehan, owner of the floor of the building which was engulfed by a massive fire in Anaj Mandi area here, is said to be an Aam Aadmi Party worker.
“Rehan, owner of the floor where a fire broke out yesterday in Delhi’s Anaj Mandi, is said to be an AAP worker. The councillor of that area and MLA also belong to the AAP. The fire did not even douse off completely and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was busy attending ‘Badhai Timarpur’ programme,” he told reporters here.
“The fourth floor of the building had caught fire where illegal work was being carried out. Over 100 workers were sleeping over there. 43 people died due to suffocation and burns. Many people were saved due to the readiness of fire tenders. 16 people are in a critical condition,” he added.
BJP’s Delhi unit chief, raised questions over the floor being locked at the time of the incident and claimed that the area where the incident occurred had been put under ‘redevelopment’ since 2017.
“The State government spent crores of rupees on advertisements but when it comes to helping labourers, they have announced a compensation of Rs 10 lakh only. The BJP demands that these labourers should be given a compensation of Rs 1 crore each and the injured should be given a compensation of at least Rs 10 lakh each,” said Tiwari.
