RWAs have been the ONLY OPPOSITION PARTY in Delhi for the past 15 years !

Dear Friends,

Yesterday afternoon I sent the following SMS to Arvind Kejeriwal, Manish Sisidia, Saurabh Bharadwaj and a few others in AAP ......

"Congratulations. I think NOW I will have to don the opposition hat n hold you up for the promises ....... :)"

This morning I read an article in Hindustan Times .... "Lack of an opposition may give unbridled power to ruling party" .... see attachment.

This got me thinking ....... where has been the opposition in Delhi for the past 15 years? Every matter of Public Interest of the Citizens of Delhi was raised by RWAs and fought Tooth and Nail ..... both on the Streets or in the Courts.

I cannot think of any issue that a Political party has raised effectively or debated in the Vidhan Sabha, MCD, Lok Sabha or Rajya Sabha with any success.

The Center, Delhi Vidhan Sabha and MCD are MERE TERRITORIES controlled by one party or the other ........ REMINDS ME OF 'THE GODFATHER'.

The Center controls Land and Police and the party in power reaps the fruit of office with identical policies, no matter which party is in power.

Delhi Vidhan Sabha gets to control DISCOMS, DJB, Transport, PWD etc and MCD gets to control Parking, Building Sanctions, Property Tax, Sanitation, Parks and the Ghost Staff they never hire or fire.

Over the past 15 years we have had Congress or BJP in Power at the center, Delhi VS and MCD, with no perceptible difference between the handling of affairs or the living condition of Delhites.

Power Tariffs, CWG, BRT, DJB, Master Plan, Parking, the list is long ...... have all been issues raised and opposed by RWAs ........ 

...... THE ABSENCE OF AN OPPOSITION IN THE DELHI VIDHAN SABHA will not be missed and RWAs are more than willing to continue doing what they have been doing for the past 15 years.

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BEING .....  that this AAP Government is from a Different Mould of Politicians and have promised a Robust Consultative Governance Model ....... 


Warm Regards,

Rajiv Kakria
