Expressing his reaction to the data issued by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that the Chief Minister has tried to divert the attention of the people from the burning problems of Delhi by jugglery of statistics. She has issued these statistics only to cover up her failures.
Shri Gupta has asked the Chief Minister if the per capita income in Delhi has increased or the number of the mobile consumers has increased in Delhi then what is the rule of Government in it? Every year about 4 lakh people come and settle in Delhi. They work hard to earn their livelihood in private sector. Their income increases due to their hard labour. Mobile phones are today best medium of communication. It is not luxury rather a necessity of the people. Government should not take credit for it. The mobile consumers also pay tax to the Government and the Government earns revenue from it.
Shri Gupta has asked the Chief Minister to tell that why not a single colony out of 895 unauthorised colonies has been regularised till date for which decision was taken two months ago? Why the condition of hospitals and education in Delhi is so bad? Why 1.5 lakh people sleep on the footpaths of the capital? This year about 3 lakh 23 thousand houses were to be constructed in Delhi by the private builders. But this work was not completed and the people could not get houses. Government data show that the pollution level in Delhi has gone up to danger mark. The water of Yamuna is not worth taking bath. There is no improvement in the quality of life of the people of Delhi because of the inefficiency of the Delhi Government for which the Government is directly responsible.
Recently Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had met Petroleum Minister Virrappa Moily and conveyed her concern about black marketing of cooking gas cylinders. It shows that cooking gas cylinders are being sold in black market and the Government is not able to curb it. The Chief Minister did not issue the data regarding the price increasing every day in Delhi because price spiral is due to the wrong policies of Delhi Government. A scheme for selling cheap flour, pulses, oil, sugar was started by Delhi Government. What happened to that scheme? How much money was looted on the pretext of this scheme because cheap flour or cheap pulses are not available anywhere in Delhi. Government has abolished quota of Kerosene of 4 lakh poor people. How these poor people shall purchase gas cylinders in black market costing 1400 rupees?
