Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that if Aam Aadmi Party gets control of the MCD, it will “beautify” the national capital and accused the current MCD of trying to turn the city into a city of "garbage mountains." During a press conference, he alleged that the civic body has plans to create 16 new landfill sites. At present, three landfill sites -- Ghazipur, Okhla, and Bhalswa -- are located on Delhi borders. "People living in the vicinity of these landfill sites are affected by the foul smell emanating from these garbage mounds and a host of other issues. Their life is literally like hell. We have heard that there are plans to make 16 new garbage mountains in the national capital," the CM said.
