·         Delhi Govt making misleading announcements on resettlement colonies

New Delhi, September, 4: The Delhi BJP today termed the much hyped announcement of the Delhi Government giving ownership papers to residents of 45 resettlement colonies as a farce. The government is charging hefty money for giving these ownership papers which is totally uncalled for. The party demanded that the residents of resettlement colonies should be g

iven ownership papers without putting heavy financial burden on them.

In a statement issued today, Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel said, “The people of the 45 resettlement colonies have been living there for decades as these colonies were developed between 1960 and 1980 and thus, they have natural rights over the plots they have been residing on. So, the Delhi Government’s announcement means practically nothing to the residents.”

“The Government is charging a hefty amount at par with the circle rates from nearly 7 lakh families living in these colonies for giving something which is already owned by them. So, in reality, the Congress government is coercing them to cough up hefty amounts in the name of giving ownership papers.
Most of the families of these colonies are displaced people, who came to live in the resettlement colonies when their JJ Clusters were removed or demolished. They are not in position to pay lakhs of rupees at par with circle rates. This decision of the government is totally unjustified.

The Delhi Government has already put a heavy burden with rising power and water bills on the families of the resettlement colonies. Earlier each dwelling in these colonies was considered to be a single unit as far as billing of power and water consumption was concerned.

But Congress government changed the norms and now each floor on these dwelling units is being treated as a separate unit. This has put a heavy burden on the families living in these colonies, especially in light of the fact that the power tariff has increased by 72% over the last couple of years and water tariff has increased by more than 1000% during Congress regime.

The Congress Government, during its 15 year misrule, has ignored the people living in resettlement colonies and JJ Clusters. The resettlement colonies  situated in different parts of the city including Sriniwaspuri, Wazirpur, Satya Niketan, Janakpuri, Phankha Road and Madangir do not have basic amenities due to lack of development initiatives by the Congress government.
