New Delhi, Sep 23 (PTI) A portion of a parapet above the first floor of a building in MCD-run Hindu Rao Hospital collapsed on Friday, triggering a blame game between the AAP and the BJP-controlled civic body.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) accused the saffron party-controlled MCD of "tinkering with the lives" of innocent people, while the latter claimed it has "not received timely grants" from the AAP-led Delhi government for the last two years for maintenance of infrastructure of health institutions.

"A portion of a parapet above the first floor of a building Hindu Rao Hospital collapsed today," a senior civic official said.
