BJP Corporators to take administration to doorsteps of people through “Public Hearings.” The flagship programme to commence from 1st of June – Vijay Goe
New Delhi, 10th May, 2013. In a first-of-its kind initiative at the civic bodies’ level, the Bharatiya Janata Party Corporators will start holding “Public Hearings” across the Capital in their respective wards from next month. The objective is to take administration in all three Municipal Corporations of Delhi to the doorsteps of common people.
Talking informally to the Press at a get together at the Constitution Club, Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel said that every BJP Corporator will hold this public hearing atleast twice a week. The days will be fixed and the venue will be decided according to convenience of the people. This flagship programme would commence from June 1st.
The common people in every ward would be able to approach their BJP Corporator in these public hearings. They can share their problems, concerns and suggestions.
The Corporators would take “on the spot” affirmative actions to resolve the issues, redress the concerns and implement suggestions with the help of MCD officials.
The schedule of these public hearings will be made available to the residents of every ward. The venues will be decided according to convenience of the people so that the largest number of people can approach the BJP corporators.
The decision to organise these public hearings came after a series of meetings where BJP corporators and state BJP leadership discussed ways and means to further bring the MCDs’ administration closer to citizens.
“This new initiative is a result of the series of brainstorming sessions held within the Delhi BJP to chalk out people-friendly programmes and bring administration to the doorsteps of the common people,” Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel said.
Commenting on the initiative, Shri Goel said, “A good model of governance is that which is people-friendly. To make governance effective, people have to have direct access and their problems should be solved in the shortest possible time. Thus, the “Public Hearing” initiative is a welcome step in the right direction.”
“Our Corporators have done commendable work in the past and BJP as a whole has done quite a bit while being in power to make quality of life better at the ward level despite many constraints due to non-cooperative attitude of the Delhi government.
That is why people re-elected us with thumping majority in MCDs last year and recently made BJP win both the MCD seats in by polls too. I am sure that these public hearings would further strengthen our bonds with the people of Delhi,” he added.
The BJP corporators in the MCD are planning to unleash a number of other initiatives in near future to make the MCDs more responsive and accessible to Delhi residents, informed Shri Goel.
