kejriwal: Arvind Kejriwal’s meeting with Delhi AAP MLAs on BJP’s demolition drive canceled: Sources

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s meeting with his party MLAs, which was scheduled for Saturday, has been canceled in the wake of a massive fire in the outer Delhi’s Mundka in which 27 lives were lost, official sources said. Several other events, including the inauguration of electric vehicle charging points by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, have been canceled as well, they said.

Kejriwal, the national convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party, was scheduled to hold a crucial meeting with party legislators to prepare a strategy to counter the anti-encroachment drives launched by the BJP-ruled municipal corporations in the national capital.

The meeting was scheduled to begin at 11 am at the chief minister’s official residence in Civil Lines.

The fire in the four-storey commercial building on Friday started from the first floor that houses the office of a company which manufactures and assembles CCTV cameras and routers, the police have said.

Kejriwal and Sisodia visited the spot to take stock of the situation.

The Delhi chief minister announced a compensation of Rs 10 lakh each to the kin of the deceased and Rs 50,000 for those injured in the blaze.

“A magisterial inquiry has been ordered into the incident. The families of the deceased will be given a compensation of Rs 10 lakh, while the injured will be given Rs 50,000,” he said.
