Talking about the devastating fire that broke out in a bag manufacturing factory at Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party MP, Sanjay Singh said that Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) is responsible for the incident. He said that it is the responsibility of MCD to ensure that no illegal factories operate out of buildings. Sanjay Singh also spoke about the Citizenship Amendment bill and said that AAP will oppose the bill in the Parliament. 

Sanjay Singh blames MCD 

Talking about the factory fire in Delhi’s factory, Sanjay Singh said, "It is really unfortunate that BJP does not refrain from doing politics over dead bodies. The MCD is responsible for the construction of the five-story building. If any illegal factory is functioning in that house, then again it is the responsibility of the MCD. This factory has been there for the last 10 years. There was no ventilation system in that factory”.  

On Monday, the locals of the Anaj Mandi staged a protest for the loss of 43 lives in the factory incident. A total of 62 people were rescued from the four-storey building that caught fire at the Rani Jhansi Road in Delhi on Sunday morning. 34 dead were confirmed by the Lok Nayak Hospital and 9 by the Lady Hardinge Hospital, police said.
