Promise of free houses to the members of Scheduled Castes
Delhi Government starts making false announcements in view of forthcoming elections inspite of objections from the Lokayukta - Vijender Gupta
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that in view of its certain defeat in the forthcoming MCD elections, Delhi Congress Government has again started showing golden dreams to the poor, slum dwellers, people of unauthorised colonies etc. After the Cabinet meeting Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit announced that Government will provide houses to the members Scheduled castes free of cost. Shri Gupta has raised a question to the Chief Minister that she should tell the people of Delhi how many homeless people belonging to Scheduled Caste live in Delhi. Delhi Government does not know how many people belonging to S.C. live in the capital.
It may be mentioned that before the MCD and Assembly elections, the Congress Party had in its manifestos said that the poor will be provided houses free of cost. All the unauthorised colonies shall be declared regularised on situ basis. The slum dwelleres will be provided pucca houses in the slum clusters. The people living in rehabilitation colonies will be given free hold rights. Not a single promise has been fulfilled during the last years. The Government had promised the people belonging to S.C. to provide pucca houses on the payment of Rs. 62,000 only under the Rajiv Ratna Awas Yojna. Not a single pucca house was provided to them. Now in view of MCD elections Government is worried about the S.C.
Shri Gupta has reminded the people of Delhi that some days ago the Lokayukta of Delhi Justice Manmohan Sareen had requested in a letter to the President of India that she should cautioned the Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit against making false election promises. This letter was written by the Lokayukta in view of failure of the Chief Minister to fulfil promise to provide pucca houses to the poor at the time of last Assembly elections. Inspite of this the Chief Minister is not desisting from making fasle promises. The GoM formed by her has also started giving false assurances to the 50 lakh residents of unauthorised colonies.
In its first meeting on the 19th September this GoM announced about developing unauthorised colonies by changing building bye-laws of the Master Plan. Under the laws it is not possible to implement this announcement. On the one hand the Government has started arresting through the Task Force any person who is making small or big construction work and on the other it is making announcement of developing the colonies. The Government has admitted that about 540 unauthorised colonies are on the Government land. Shri Gupta has questioned how the Cabinet approved the proposal to regularised these colonies? The people of Delhi have understood the falsehood of Congress Government and the Congress Party. They will never forgive the Congress Party which is fueling price rise, increasing power tariff, price of milk etc.
