Don't you think that some of the Apolitical RWA persons can be nominated as the Alderman ?

"An alderman is a member of a municipal assembly or council who is not elected by popular vote. Under DMC Act, the L-G can nominate 10 eminent persons as aldermen to the civic body. Aldermen do not have voting rights but are nominated from among social workers or experts in different fields. The L-G's nomination follows recommendations by the Delhi Government."     The Hindu - Link

The MCD Act says : Chapter II 3 (3) (a) The Corporation shall be composed of the councillors; (b) the following persons shall be represented in the Corporation, namely:— (i) ten persons, who are not less than 25 years of age and who have special knowledge or experience in municipal administration, to be nominated by the Administrator: Provided that the persons nominated under this sub-clause shall not have the right to vote in the meetings of the Corporation;

OUR SAY : Everyone knows that RWA persons, are mostly apolitical, Social workers, without any political interference. They are working for the society since last many years and regularly raising various issues concerning the society.

Under the DMC Act, aldermen do not have voting rights but are nominated from among social workers or experts in different fields. 

Don't you think that some of the Apolitical RWA persons can be nominated as the Alderman ? 

As 30 persons are to be nominated to the 3 MCD's of Delhi i.e. 10 persons to each MCD, even a few inductions of RWA persons may help in improving the situation. 

As they are absolutely apolitical, they can act as a bridge between two different political parties, at two different levels, in managing the affairs of the MCD. 

The RWA persons must be considered, as the Social Workers / Experts, without any political tagging.
