Letter to President
Sh. Pranav Mukherji
Hon’ble President of India
On behalf of Delhi BJP, the Chief Ministerial Candidate of BJP Dr. Harsh Vardhan, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Vijay Goel and Leader of the Opposition in Delhi Legislative Assembly Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra want to draw your kind attention an important case. The details of which are as follows:-
· In the year 2008 Smt. Dikshit had distributed provisional certificates to 50 lakh residents of unauthorized colonies through the Congress President Mrs. Sonia Gandhi with the assurance of regularization for the purpose of ensuring victory in the forthcoming elections. Lakhs of rupees were spent by the Government on the advertisement for it. The Chief Minister and the Government were aware of the fact that the hon’ble Supreme Court has banned the regularization of unauthorized colonies before providing the basic amenities in this in those colonies. The Government distributed provisional certificates to the colonies which came up on public land, gram sabha land, forest land, ridge area, ASI land, water bodies and the land under notified area for securing votes.
· Dr. Harsh Vardhan had filed case in the court of the Lokayukta of Delhi against the Chief Minister for misleading the people by misusing her position and influencing the voters and requested the Lokayukta to take action against her. The Lokayukta ordered for enquiring on the complaints of Dr. Harsh Vardhan on 31.8.2010 and the enquiry found that the Chief Minister Sheila Diskhit gave false assurance for securing the votes on the occasion of Assembly Elections. The Government issued big advertisements in the newspapers and TV channels to mislead the people at the cost of lakhs of rupees.
· Just before the Assembly Election in 2008, the Government issued Provisional Certificates for regularizing the unauthorized colonies. Similarly, on 4th September, 2012 just before the assembly elections the Delhi Government issued notification separately for amending the rules for regularizing the unauthorized colonies. The purpose of the Government was to get the votes of about 50 lakh people of unauthorized colonies in favor of the Congress party by misleading them both in the elections held in 2008 and to be held on 4th December, 2013. Taking serious view of the case the Lokayukta on 5.11.2013 held that the issuance of provisional certificates to the colonies was battened violation of Code of Conduct by the Chief Minister.
· On 5.11.2013, Lokayukta found the Chief Minister guilty in this case. The same day he wrote a letter to you requesting that he should caution the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit not to mislead the people in future. It is necessary to mention that the Lokayukta had written a similar letter to the then President of India Pratibha Devi Singh Patil to caution the Chief Minister. But Mrs. Sheila Dikshit did not relent. Smt. Sheila Dikshit issued big advertisements in the media with the photographs of Ministers Raj Kumar Chauhan, A.K. Walia, Yoganand Shahstri, Harun Yousuf, Mangat Ram Singhal and Arvinder Singh Lovely after spending the public money. She is still misusing her position influence and violating Code of Conduct to mislead the people and wasting public money.
Hence it is requested that in order to ensure free and fair elections and fear and holding sanctity of Code of Conduct, you should immediately issue order to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Central Home Minister to take punitive action against Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Delhi Government, related Ministers and Officials and kindly inform us about the action taken.
With due regards,
(Dr. Harsh Vardhan) (Vijay Goel) (Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra)
