Addressing a rally at Aya Nagar in southern part of the city, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president Arvinder Singh Lovely said his party workers would come out on the streets and fight against the government's anti-people and destructive actions.

"Party workers will come out on the streets and fight against the government's anti-people decision and bravely face the bulldozers to foil this nefarious design," he said.

He also alleged that whenever BJP came to power, it has taken decisions 'against the people of unauthorized colonies'.

"BJP is enemy of those living in unauthorized colonies and the villages of Delhi, and that was the reason why work to provide civic amenities in the 895 colonies, which had been regularized by the erstwhile Congress government, had been stalled completely," the DPCC chief said.

Senior Congress leader Haroon Yusuf said the demolition drive in the unauthorized colonies would not be tolerated.

"As soon the BJP came to power at the Centre, the revenue department of the Delhi government had unleashed a reign of terror on unauthorized colonies following which people living in the villages cannot carry out any repair work in their own houses for their domestic use without paying bribes to the officials.

Demolition drive is being carried out on the behest of BJP," DPCC chief spokesperson Mukesh Sharma alleged.

In the rally, a resolution was also passed, condemning the demolition drive
"The resolution pledged that they would be united in fight against the demolition drive, and if need be, they would go to jail to protect their houses," Sharma added.
