Lt Governor gave reason to return the file
Sending the campaign file back to the Delhi government, the Lieutenant Governor has written that in this campaign, the Civil Defense Volunteers cannot be kept standing in the midst of heavy traffic and pollution in this way, it is very inhuman as well as exploiting them. Along with this, the Department of Law and Revenue should also investigate whether the Civil Defense Volunteers can be used in this way during the campaign or not.
