The buck stops at the top of the Garbage HeapIt seems the power struggle between the AAP government & the LG of Delhi has taken a toll on the collection of garbage also. The heap of garbage at Ghazipur area had scaled the height of 65 metre, just 8 metre shorter than that of Qutub Minar. The blame game is still on and both the government and LG's office clarified that collection of garbage is the job of Municipality. It seems it is none of the government or the LG's business.
The AAP government is clamoring for removal of NCT status and demanding full statehood for quite sometime now, but the central government is thinking otherwise. Few days earlier, a Supreme Court bench categorically ruled that the LG of Delhi has no independent decision making power and was again castigated on Thursday for his indifferent attitude towards the removal of garbage. The LG has the authority to give out instructions to clear up the mess but till now he has not done it. Is it a clash of ego or the LG is playing into someone's hands? It is to be seen where the buck stops.
