Charge sheet against Delhi Government submitted to the President.
BJP delegation led by Goel meets President of India.
New Delhi, 27th April, 2013. A delegation led by BJP Delhi Pradesh President Vijay Goel and Leader of the Opposition in Delhi Legislative Assembly Vijay Kumar Malhotra met the President of India and submitted a Charge Sheet against the Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit. It has been demanded in the Charge Sheet that the Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit has completely failed in discharging her duties. The Chief Minister and her Government have no right to continue. In exercise of his powers under article 239-AB of the Constitution, the President should dismiss the Sheila Government. The delegation included former Pradesh Presidents Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Shri Vijender Gupta, Legislators Prof. Jagdish Mukhi, Shri Ramesh Bidhuri, National Secretary Aarti Mehra and Pradesh Mahila Morcha President Shikha Rai.
After the meeting which continued for half an hour, the President assured the delegation that he will talk to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Home Minister Shri Shinde in this regard.
The delegation of Shri Goel and Shri Malhotra apprised the President about the condition of Delhi. Shri Goel told the President that Law and Order has failed in Delhi. The incidents of rape are increasing alarmingly. Girls and women do not feel safe in Delhi. Not only the political parties but the NGOs and general public are agitating in their streets and even now new cases of rape are being reported. Is the continuance of this Government justified in these conditions?
Shri Goel said that public order in Delhi is disturbed. There is nothing like Government in Delhi. There is deep resentment among the people on the issue of power and water. During the last two years, the power tariff has been increased by 60 percent. Agitations are taking place every day against nexus between power companies and Delhi Government and against increasing power tariff. Water charges have been increased by 11 to 10 times during the last 15 years. Water supplied at 35 paise per kilolitre has been increased up to 35 rupees per kilolitre. 50 percent of the people of Delhi do not get potable water and are compelled to drink such water which is not worth drinking. Some days ago there was fight over getting drinking water in which a person was crushed under the wheels of water tanker. The CAG has found that there is no facilities in the hospitals and private and costly hospitals are replacing the Government hospitals. There is scarcity of medicines, blood, nurses and doctors in the Government hospitals. Nobody wants to send his children to Government schools. People have no option but to get costly education for their children in public schools.
Power, health services and education are being privatized and now privatization of water supply is also on cards.
Shri Malhotra said that the Shunglu Committee appointed by the Prime Minister had indicted Sheila Government for corruption in Commonwealth Games. CAG, PAC and Lokayukta have makes serious comments against Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, her Ministers for corruption.
Shri Goel said that the people of Delhi know that how much the prices of petrol, diesel, LPG, water, power charges, stamp duty, circle rate, transport fees, GPS have increased during the last 15 years. This year the Lt. Governor in his budget speech had mentioned about saving 30 thousand crore rupees by preventing power theft from 57 percent to 15 percent but why power tariff has been increased?
Shri Goel requested the President to dismiss this Government for failing to maintain public order under Article 239-AB and failing to comply with the provisions of Article 239-AA of the Constitution of India.
