हम से क्या भूल हुई, जो ये सज़ा हम को मिली ?

पूर्वी दिल्ली मे इन चार सालों मे होने वाली सॅनिटेशन वर्कर्स की स्ट्राइक्स के बाद सिर्फ़ एक सवाल बचता है पूछने के लिए कि हमसे क्या भूल हुई, जो ये सज़ा हम को मिली. एक बार घर से निकल कर देखिए तो सही कि क्या ये वो ही दिल्ली हैं जिसे हम कभी मेरी दिल्ली मेरी शान के तगमे से नवाज़ा करते थे. और आज की तारीख मे सिर्फ़ और सिर्फ़ कचरा, कचरे के ढेर, गली गली मे कचरा, हर नुक्कड़ पे कचरा, हर मोहल्ले मे कचरा, इसकी पहचान हो गए है.


और इस कचरे के साथ साथ दिक्कत ये भी हो गई है कि कोई सुनने वाला भी नही है. पहले तो ज़रा सी तकलीफ़ होने पर दिल्ली की RWAs भाग कर SDM के पास पहुँच जाती थी, लेकिन भागीदारी के ख़तम होते ही, सब कुछ ख़तम हो गया. अब तो सब का अपनी ढफ्ली, अपने राग वाला हिसाब है. EDMC कहती है की दिल्ली सरकार उनको फंड नही दे रही और इसलिए उनके पास कोई भी पैसा नही है, काम करने के लिए. दूसरी तरफ दिल्ली सरकार दिल्ली हाइ कोर्ट के आदेश के बाद भी EDMC को फंड्स ना देकर, सुप्रीम कोर्ट चली गई है.

और इस पूर्वी दिल्ली की हालत देखिए, किसी भूखे भिखारी के फटे झोले की तरह, सड़कों पर जगह जगह इतने खड्डे हैं कि समझ मे ही नही आता की सड़क पे खड्डे हैं या फिर खद्डों मे सड़क है. इसके बाद, बरसातों मे भारी जल भराव, डेंगू और चिकनगुनया का लगातार ध्वज लहराना, और इन सॅनिटेशन वर्कर्स को तनख़्वाह ना मिलने के कारण, पूरी EDMC का कचरे के ढेर मे बदल जाना, सिर्फ़ यही दर्शाता है, कि ज़रूर हम से ही कोई भूल हुई, जिसकी ये सज़ा हम को मिली.

और हमारे दिल्ली के CM साहेब की सारी तवज्जो तो सिर्फ़ NDMC के एरीयाज़ मे है कि उधर की RWAs को 10 करोर का फंड मिल जाए ताकि वो लोग अपने काम करवा पाएँ ताकि उनकी सीट तो पक्की हो जाए, और बाकी की RWAs तो सिर्फ़ बेवकूफ़ बनाने के लिए हैं. चुनावों से पहले बड़े बड़े वादे कर लो, और चुनावों के बाद पलट कर भी ना देखो. भाई हमे आपसे कोई भी फंड नही चाहिए, हमे तो हमारे वाली वो पुरानी दिल्ली लौटा दो, जिसमे भागीदारी हुआ करती थी, जिसमे सड़कों पर कचरे के ढेर नही हुआ करते थे, जिसमे हमारी सुनवाई भी हो जाती थी.

अब आप कहोगे कि उस दिल्ली मे बिजली कितनी मैंहगी हुआ करती थी, तो जनाब, कसर तो आपने भी नही छोडी है. वो लोग सीधे से पैसा खींच लेते थे, आप लोग थोड़ा सा टेडा करके खींच रहे हो. यकीन नही होता तो बिजली के फिक्स्ड चार्जस को ही देख लो. टोटल पीक लोड सिर्फ़ 7,115 MW और हम लोग फिक्स्ड चार्जस दे रहे हैं 22,876 MW पर. आप कहोगे की भाई, पहले भी तो यही होता था. लेकिन जनाब, तब रेट हुआ करते थे 20/-, 35-, 45/- per KW, और आपने इसी मार्च 2018 से रेट कर दिए 120/-, 145/-. 175/- और 250/- तक per KW.

दूसरी तरफ EDMC को भी चाहिए की अगर दिल्ली सरकार सुन के राज़ी नही है तो आप सिर्फ़ फंड ना होने का रोना रोकर बच तो नही सकते. पूरे भारत मे आपकी सरकार है. अगर मोदी जी दूसरे परदेशों को किसी भी त्रासदी मे मदद कर सकते हैं, तो वो दिल्ली की इस त्रासदी मे दिल्ली वालों की मदद भी कर सकते हैं. एक बार उनसे फंड्स लेकर दिल्ली को इस कचरे की राजनीति से निज़ात दिलवाइए और दिल्ली की शान ओ शौकत को वापिस लौटाइए. वरना दिल्ली के लोगों को मजबूर होकर यही बोलना पड़ेगा कि हम से क्या भूल हुई, जो ये सज़ा हम को मिली ?

Yet another Strike of the Sanitation workers in East Delhi

21st September 2018 

Mr. Manish Sisodia,  Dy CM, Delhi.

Subject: Yet another Strike of the Sanitation workers in East Delhi.

Dear Sir,

The Residents of East Delhi are facing yet another Strike of the Sanitation workers. Almost all the Roads are filled with the Stinking Garbage/Filth all over and amidst the potholes in bulk, it becomes dangerous even to walk and drive, while covering the face with one hand.

Unpaid dues of the EDMC Leading to the Strike:
EDMC officials/Councillors say that Delhi Government has not paid the dues as per the 4th Delhi Finance Commission & that is the reason of Strike as EDMC is unable to pay the salaries of Sanitation workers. 

Vector-borne diseases Vs Filth & garbage all over:
We are also worried a lot due to the rise in the Dengue cases this year and the garbage/filth all over, at this time will definitely escalate the problem of vector-borne diseases in East Delhi.

Contempt Notice of HC:
As per the News report dated 28th August 2018, even the HC had issued a Notice to Delhi Government to release funds to EDMC, North MCD, or face contempt. 

Who is Fooling whom:
In such circumstances, we just want to know the TRUTH that who is fooling whom? We want to know if it is the fault of EDMC or Delhi Government is responsible for all the mess?

Immediate action expected:
Therefore, may we request you to please share the Actual figures of the Payments done to the EDMC, immediately, as we would like to discuss the same with the EDMC officials/Councillors, to come to the conclusion.

Looking forward to your immediate reply, as we want an immediate solution to this sanitation problem of the residents of East Delhi.

With best regards,

What Anurag Kashyap tweeted after viewing Censor Board Letter - Manmarziyan

It is quite shocking that Mr. Anurag Kashyap is not willing to understand the sentiments of the Sikh community.

On the one hand, he says, "It was never the intention to hurt the community and why would we do that when we got so much love from them"

On the other hand, he says,"Technology does not allow us to cut a scene and it affects the story telling. So I definitely can not do that now.

To those whose hurt is genuine, I offer a genuine apology, that wasn’t my intention. And for those who are doing it for attention, I am glad you have got the attention".

And after viewing the Letter of the Censor Board, his outburst was," Congratulations. Here by all problems of Punjab are solved and Sikh youth have been saved. Happy to be back in LaLa land again. Next time you are threatened by a film please call Kishore Lulla directly on +91 98679 66661. Eros knows how to solve matters in minutes".

Garbage piling up in east Delhi - The Hindu

The strike by sanitation workers enters Day 8

The Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) in east Delhi have raised a complaint about the growing piles of garbage on the streets, as a strike by the municipal safai karamcharis entered its eighth day on Wednesday.
B.S Vohra, president of the East Delhi RWA’s Joint Front, said: “The garbage from homes is being collected by people we have privately employed, but the streets are not being swept, which is leading to big piles of garbage everywhere. Diseases will spread because of this.”
Safai karamchari unions have been protesting over delayed payment of wages and the roll-back of hiked minimum wage announced by the Delhi government.
Sanjay Ghelot, president of the MCD Swachhata Karamchari Union, which is leading the strike, said: “We have met the Mayor twice till now but have only received assurances. We will not end the strike till we see some real results.”
Nirmal Jain, Leader of the House of the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC), said: “We are urging the union to give up their strike... the EDMC is in a poor financial situation, we need funds from the Delhi government to be able to meet their demands.”
The EDMC also filed a police complaint against Mr. Ghelot and other office-bearers of the union on Tuesday for having allegedly threatened corporation officials. Mr. Ghelot has refuted the allegations.
A civic body official said: “We need the help of the people. Garbage is still being collected from the dumps. If people throw their garbage at the designated spots instead of on the roads, the strike can be broken.”

Yet another strike of the Sanitation workers in East Delhi

Yet another strike of the sanitation workers in east Delhi - 8th day - its stinking all over with garbage everywhere on the roads. The same old story - EDMC has no funds, Sanitation workers demanding Salary & arrears. Strange & Shocking. How many times we will have to bear all this? How many times they have to sit on the Strike to get the Salary & the arrears? MCD is not listening. Delhi Government is not listening. The general public is facing the menace of garbage & liter all over - stinking lanes & bylanes. Enough is enough. Seems the time has come when the three MCD's of Delhi must be unified again so that cash crunch of EDMC is over as the richer areas with higher payouts are out of the range of EDMC.

DDA Public Hearing on 19th September 2018

7th September 2018

Secy, DDA,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Just can not understand that how you can increase the Limit of the Household industrial units from 5 persons to 10 persons and the Electric load from 5 kW to 11 kW?

Have you given a thought that how much pressure it will make on the Infrastructure of the City, which is already lacking in every respect?

Residents are already facing severe problems in this Most Polluted & most congested city, where Civic Agencies have absolutely failed in providing even the basic necessities.

We strongly oppose any such modification in the MPD 2021. Please let us know in case there is any Public hearing.

Thanks

This is how Delhi is the Most Polluted City

This is how Delhi is the Most Polluted City. In spite of the orders of the NGT and various Pollution control bodies such as CPCB & DPCC, nothing can be controlled until n unless we take it as our Citizen Responsibility, Duty & Responsibility to come forward to Save the City from the clutches of Pollution.

Why NO Meeting of CM, with the RWAs of Delhi ?

Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, 
CM, Delhi 

Dear Sir,

Almost 4 years are nearing completion and we are still awaiting an RWAs meet with you. We still remember the meet that you had called before the Elections at Rouse Avenue and had made huge promises with the RWAs present there. We just can not understand that why you stopped communicating with the RWAs, once you came into power.



We still remember the Bhagidari Cell of Smt Shiela Dikshit which had given us so many opportunities of getting the work done through SDMs of the area with a regular meeting with him. But since your arrival, SDMs have stopped calling RWAs as they don't have any such instructions from your office.



MCD says they don't have Funds and you don't ask SDMs to invite the RWAs to discuss even the basic necessities of life, such as road repairs, pothole filling, water logging issues etc. As a result Life of the residents has become very difficult. 


Issues of De-silting have made the life miserable as since last over 25 years, Delhiites have to face severe water logging every now & then. Potholes in the knee-deep waterlogged areas, give real bumps in the stomach of every rider. 



The documents say that the drainage system of Delhi has absolutely failed and we don't even know the fate of the research done by IIT engineers & many other organizations in this regard. 



Traffic Jam & Pollution are the burning issues causing huge problems for the residents. WHO says that over 30K persons are dying every year just due to the Pollution related issues in Delhi NCR. 


Open Dhalavs in almost every locality & the Open Landfill sites, mountains of garbage, are the worst sides of this mega city.



The DISCOMs are collecting huge amounts of Fixed charges for the Fake Sanctioned load, that is never arranged, never supplied by them but there is none to listen.


We definitely appreciate some of your good works such as Free operations in the Private hospitals, Doorstep delivery, Pension to senior citizens, etc. 



But we also expect your direct interaction with the RWAs of Delhi. We do not require any funds, instead, we just want that all the local issues could be resolved with your intervention, through the SDMs of the area, as earlier.

Awaiting your earliest response.

With best regards,

Soon, pay less for the sanctioned power load change : HT

Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, CM,
Mr. Satyendra Jain, Power Minister,

Dear Sir,

In response to our stories on Delhi Aajtak on the issue of Zero Billing & the Additional Load charges, the Power Minister of Delhi, Mr. Satyender Jain had issued a Statement, over a month ago, instructing the DERC for the necessary changes. 

As a result, the Additional Load charges (Security Deposit) were to be collected on the prevailing rates, only on the Additional Load & not on the entire load of the consumers.






 

While thanking you for the above-said orders, we just want to have a confirmation from your office or from the DERC that the above changes have been notified & implemented. 

May I request you to please look into the issue & revert at the earliest.

With best regards,
