New Delhi, Oct 29 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Partys Chief Ministerial candidate for Delhi, V K Malhotra has alleged that a number of “scandals had taken place during the Congress rule in the national capital and said these needed to be probed.

Malhotra, who is the deputy Leader of BJP in the Lok Sabha, said that during campaigning the BJP would highlight these “scams” and “failures” of the Shiela Dikshit Government, besides raising the issue of terrorism for the November 29 elections.

However, he ruled out any witch-hunting.

Malhotra identified the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) corridor project in Delhi as one of the cases requiring inquiry and promised to review the scheme.

Malhotra, while contending that the project was undertaken “unscientifically”, said, “BRT is a disaster. They spent Rs. 120 crores on the first phase of it. Now they have hired a company to justify it.

BRT is badly affecting the traffic in the city. We will have to solve these problems,” Malhotra added.

He further said, “They prepared a scheme costing Rs. 2,000 crore for BRT corridors in the city. We will review the entire scheme.” (ANI)
