After allegations of a nexus between municipal councillors and a tent cartel was raised in the Delhi Assembly on Friday, Urban Development Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely said he would take the issue up with Lieutenant-Governor Tejendra Khanna.
Parliamentary Secretary Mukesh Sharma raised the issue in the Assembly.
"There is a nexus between the tent cartel and councillors which is creating problems for citizens in getting parks/community halls booked in their names for marriages or other social functions. This cartel book parks and halls in advance under fictitious names and then charge a hefty fee from the public to use these facilities," Sharma said.
Sharma said such parks and halls were transferred from the Delhi Development Authority to the municipal corporations for maintenance purposes. "The corporations have authorised councillors to make recommendations for booking. It has come to the notice that councillors are involved with the tent cartel," Sharma said.
