·         Famous Cartoonist, former legislator and Congress leader, corporate leader join BJP
·         Prominent Muslims support BJP’s agenda of “Corruption-free Development” for Delhi
·         NSSO data shows Muslims lag behind in economic growth, govt. jobs in Delhi

Famous Cartoonist Shri Haneef Azhar, leading corporate personality Shri Azhar Yusuf, Faizal Yusuf and former MLA Shri Karan Yadav, Smt. Rajesh Yadav and members of Poorvanchal Gan Parishad Delhi Pradesh alongwith various members of Muslim community among which are some prominent Advocates and intellectuals from various fields were among many who joined the BJP today in presence of Delhi BJP President Shri Vijay Goel.  Delhi BJP Minority Morcha President Shri Atif Rashid was also present on the occasion.

After welcoming those who joined the BJP today at Delhi BJP’s headquarters at Pandit pant Marg, Shri Goel said, “The Congress government has done nothing for the Muslims during the last 15 years in Delhi except paying the lip service.”

According to NSSO data, Muslims face high levels of poverty in Delhi. It says that 31% Muslims live below poverty line in Delhi. Only 23.7 % Muslims are in Government Jobs and 6.5 % in private Jobs in Delhi.

Urdu the second official language of Delhi but still, no State Government Department has an Urdu translator. Urdu medium schools in Delhi have a total of 90 seats out of which only 32 are filled. The rest 52 are lying vacant. Not a single Urdu medium school has been established since 1998.

The government has also allowed and at times indulged in encroachment of the Wakf Properties. Out of 685 encroached Wakf properties in Delhi, 158 are encroached by ASI, 373 have been encroached by the public while 114 by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA). 26 other Wakf properties are held by different government agencies. If the Wakf Board is managed well it can generate sufficient funds to fulfil development needs of the community.

According to the 1970 gazette notification, 488 Muslim graveyards existed in Delhi. However, as of now, there are only 25-30 graveyards that are actually operational. There is scarcity of burial ground for the community. 

“The Muslims can see through the double-speak of Congress.  There is a growing support among Muslims for BJP’s agenda of “Corruption-Free Development” in Delhi.”

Shri Goel further said, “People from various sections of society are joining hands with the BJP as it is the only viable alternative to replace Congress in Delhi.”

Shri Goel welcomed the return of Shri Yadav to BJP fold. The latter was with the Congress since 2008.

The BJP has seen several leaders from across the socio-political spectrum joining the BJP in last few days. Last week itself, several leaders from the Congress, the Janata Dal (United), the BSP and Independent Councillors, apart from noted Bhojpuri singer and actor Shri Manoj Tiwari joined the BJP. Earlier, senior NCP leader Ramvir Singh Bidhuri along with sitting NCP Councillors Shri Dharamveer Awana, Smt. Timsy Kasana, Smt. Phoolkali Narwaal joined the BJP. This was preceded by seven Councillors joining the BJP in July. They were Suresh Garg, Krishna Kumar Sehrawat, Pramod Tanwar, Rahul Prabhudayal, Chander Prakash, Pradeep Kumar and Naresh Balyan.

These developments capture the prevailing mood of the people in Delhi clearly showing that there is a groundswell of support for the BJP for the Delhi assembly elections.
