Congress responsible for the miserable condition of villages of Delhi - Vijender Gupta
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that in view of the forthcoming elections Congress Government is now worried about the miserable condition of about 400 villages of the capital. Congress Government led by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit is ruling Delhi for the last twelve and half years. Chief Minister never visited the villages. By imposing ban on the cottage industries in the villages Delhi Government rendered the youth of villages unemployed and made the condition of villages hellish. The task force formed by Delhi Government prosecuted innocent people and sent them to jail who were making small additional construction in the villages. Now in view of the forthcoming elections, Delhi Government has started showing golden dreams to the people of Delhi.
Whenever election approaches Delhi Government expresses its concern about the unauthorised colonies, slum dwellers, poor people and the people belonging to SCs. After making false promise of providing free houses to lakhs of people belonging to S.C. now the Chief Minister and her cabinet colleagues met the Urban Development Minister Shri Kamal Nath and pleaded for improving the conditions of about 400 villages of Delhi. Government did not extend the Lal Dora area during the last twelve and half years and when the people made construction due to the compulsion of increase in the number of family members then they were sent to jail. Now the same Chief Minister is trying to mislead the people of villages by talking about extending Lal Dora area.
Shri Gupta had raised a question to the Central Urban Development Minister Shri Kamal Nath and Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit that how much time the Committee formed by Shri Kamal Nath will take to submit its report on the improvement of the condition of the villages of Delhi. What action will be taken by the Delhi Government on this report? Delhi Government has already formed more than two dozen committees for improving the conditions of villages. The reports of these committees are rusting in Almirahas of Delhi Secretariat.
BJP Delhi Pradesh submitted memorandums to the Government, staged demonstrations for improving the conditions of unauthorised colonies and rural & urbanised villages several times, but this deaf & dumb Government did not listen. The schemes forwarded for allotment of fund to the Delhi Government as approved by the Delhi Rural Development Board in the beginning of year 2011 for the development of villages, have not been implemented even in September, 2011. The Chief Minister has given the control of Rural Development Board to such a person who has no relation with the villages.
