On Delhi Fire, BJP Leader’s Remark Goes Viral

By 21st January 2018 0 Comments

Among the string of politicians that rushed to north Delhi’s Bawana where a massive fire at a firecracker warehouse claimed 17 lives on Saturday evening, was BJP leader and North Delhi mayor Preeti Aggarwal. Ms Aggarwal was quick to attack Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, questioning his absence at the site, nearly five hours after the tragedy struck. But a huge self-goal followed. In a video that is bound to cause major embarrassment for her party, Ms Aggarwal is seen whispering to one of her aides, “iss factory ki licensing hamare paas hai, isliye hum kuch nahi bol sakte (the licensing of the factory is with us, hence we can’t say anything)”.

The North Delhi Mayor’s remark assumes significance as the police, among other aspects, are looking into the licensing for the firecracker packaging unit as part of investigations into the cause of the fire.
