‘Legal action should be taken against Minister and Officers responsible for criminal negligence for failure of Rajiv Ratan Awas Yojna’ – Goel

  • All the betrayed applicants under the Rajiv Ratan Awas Yojna to demonstrate at the residence of the CM
New Delhi, 4th April.  An urgent meeting of all the 14 District President of Delhi BJP was held at 14, Pt. Pant Marg in which it was decided that the BJP workers would approach all those 4 lakh persons registered under the Rajiv Ratan Awas Yojna of Delhi Government in the year 2007. It was decided to mobilize them for a massive demonstration at the residence of Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit at 10.00 a.m. tomorrow.  

Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel said that Congress is a party of leaders who expertise in constructing castles in air. On one hand Rahul Gandhi makes empty emotional appeal for the common man at the CII and on the other hand Sheila Dikshit blatantly violates her promises make to the poor. Goel reminded that Sheila Dikshit had promised 4 lakh houses for the slum dwellers in Delhi, in 2007 just prior to Assembly Elections. For the same, these 4 lakh poor people had to shell out Rs.100 from their pockets to fill the form. But ironically the Delhi Government requested for a sanction of nearly 1 lakh houses from the Central Sanctioning and Monitoring Committee under JNNURM. Of these 44 thousand houses were cancelled because of non availability of hindrance free land. By the time of the audit only 10 thousand houses were made of which only 85 were allotted. Goel said that this is the difference between the prophecy and practice of this Government.

Vijay Goel further added that the Delhi Lokayukta had recommended to the President of India to take action against Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit for misrepresenting facts during the 2008 Assembly Elections. Sheila Dikshit has said that 60 thousand flats were ready to be handed over while she allegedly knew that they were not. Goel said that CAG has exposed the hollow commitments and corrupt practices of Sheila Dikshit in the same line as the Lokayukta had done before. Goel has demanded that appropriate legal action should be taken against the Ministers and Officers of Delhi Government responsible for this criminal negligence.

Sheila Dikshit has betrayed the poor people at the time when they are already suffering due to price rise. They are unable to make both ends meet due to higher prices on all the essential commodities. Goel pointed out that the CAG has rapped the Delhi Government for failing to utilize its funds to check inflation. CAG has said that Rs. 2.50 crores was kept for market intervention to check inflation in essential commodities, but the fund wasn’t utilized.
