Kumar accused the BJP-led MCC administration of corruption, citing the frequent digging of newly constructed roads as evidence. He emphasized that crores are being spent on road development projects that violate guidelines requiring checks on underground cables, drinking water pipelines, and drainage networks before commencing work. He claimed these guidelines are ignored to expedite the use of available funds.
