Connivance between Government and land mafia is the cause of increasing circle rates
Government has put unbearable burden of 1500 crores on the people by increasing circle rates by 250% - Vijender Gupta
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that the Delhi Government has put unbearable burden of 1500 crore rupees on the people by increasing circle rates by 250%. There is grave conspiracy of Delhi Government and Congress Party behind hiking circle rates. Government and the Congress Party which have failed to provide basic amenities to the common man now has decided to make highest increase in circle rates so far due to which the the poor and common man may not be able to live in Delhi. Under this conspiracy circle rates have been increased for the second time within 8 months. Congress Government wants to recover the losses caused by the Government loot in CWG.
This year in the February Delhi Government had increased circle rates by 100%. Due to this the circle rates for H-category was increased from Rs. 6,900 to Rs. 13,800. Now the Government has fixed circle rates for A to H category under which circle rates have been increased by 250% in A-category, 100% in B & C category, 25 to 30 percent in E-category, 20 to 25 percent in F-category and 10 to 15 percent in G & H category. Government will earn revenue of 1500 to 2000 crores by this increase.
Delhi Government had spent 25 thousand crore rupees on CWG and now the Chief Minister wants to make up the loss by exploiting the people. Common man live in G & H category colonies. All the unauthorised colonies come under this category. Government has not provided basic amenities in these colonies. Now the Government by increasing circle rates wants to drive out 50 lakh poor people of Delhi living in 1639 unauthorised colonies. Connivance between Government and land mafia is working behind it.
Shri Gupta told that 350% hike in the circle rates within 8 months can not be said to be reasonable or justified. BJP demands that Government should immediately withdraw new circle rates and continue with old circle rates so that the life of the common man may not be disturbed. He further told that price rise is increasing day by day. All the methods of Central and Delhi Government for curbing it have failed. Now with the increase in the circle rates the prices of land and building will be sky rocketing. 49% people of Delhi do not have houses of their own. Such people live in rented houses and spend their majority of income for paying rent in Delhi.
This hike in circle rates will also affect house rent. Now house rents will increase by 30%. Even before the people of Delhi have been spending 40 to 50 percent of their earning on house rent. Now due to further increase in house rent they will have to leave Delhi. This migration will affect the social, economic and cultural fabric of Delhi. Development of Delhi will be hindered. Large number of labourers live in Delhi. When the labourers will migrate out of Delhi then the industries will be paralysed.
