BJP corporators gear up for ‘Janata Adalat’ from June 1
New Delhi, May 21 : Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party President Shri Vijay Goel today asked the BJP corporators to focus on people’s problems and highlight the achievements of the Municipal Coroporations of Delhi.
In a two hour long interaction with the BJP corporators from the North MCD at Delhi BJP’s office, Shri Goel discussed issues, achievements and challenges faced by the BJP corporators. Earlier he has held similar meetings with the South and the East MCD.
Shri Goel has addressed these meetings in run up to the “Janata Adalat” campaign which is going to start from June 1. Under this campaign all BJP corporators will sit for two days in a week- Tuesday and Saturday- at open public spaces and resolve the public grievances on the spot to the maximum possible extent with the help of officials.
“I will visit various Janata Adalats to see how our initiative is working out. This will also help to formulate our future initiatives on the basis of feedback that we will get from such Janata Adalats.
Addressing the corporators, Shri Goel emphasized that the corporators should personally supervise sanitation, education facilities, maintenance of parks and other developmental works. He said the corporators should work in close coordination with the Resident Welfare Associations.
He further said that the BJP corporators have done a commendable job but given the number of problems and the volume of issues faced by the common residents along with the several limitations they face due to lack of cooperation from Delhi government but there is a long road ahead.
He emphasised that people have high expectations from the elected representatives belonging to BJP, so there is a greater responsibility on all the BJP leaders and workers to fulfill these expectations.
Several corporators shared their problems regarding lack of cooperation from the Delhi government which often affects the developmental works. They also came up with the list of individual achievements on various fronts which were applauded.
“It is unfortunate that for Congress petty politics takes precedence over development. We should expose the misdeeds of the Congress government in this regard and push for greater speed of developmental works,” said Shri Goel.
The Delhi BJP President said, “Janata Adalat is an important initiative which will set up a new bench mark of participatory and responsive governance. It will also reinforce the fact that while the corrupt Congress government has only lame excuses to justify the lack of development in domains where they have authority, the BJP believes in positive agenda of development for all.”
The BJP corporators also came up with several suggestions related to improving community centres, school education, maintenance of parks and expediting of developmental works. The suggestions were discussed and debated at length.
Welcoming these suggestions Shri Goel said, the expert groups set up the party to work on various issues related to Delhi’s development will be forwarded these suggestions so that they can incorporate them in their forthcoming reports which are part of the BJP’s ongoing effort to come up with a long term visionary plan for development of Delhi.
