"We have discussed four big issues with the minister. Firstly, the issues of the poor such as compensation for them, we will need central government's help in that. Secondly, the issue of unauthorized colonies on which the Centre recently passed a resolution. So in order to take it forward help will be needed from MCD, DDA and the Centre," AAP leader Manish Sisodia told reporters after the meeting with Naidu.

"We told him that for more schools, colleges, hospitals and parking, a lot of land will be needed so whatever land is available with DDA, we have requested for it.

 

 Sisodia said that, "We have discussed issues and have decided to cooperate on them. We won't let party line come into agenda."
