Open letter to Delhi CM Mr Arvind Kejriwal on the status of RWAs !

K/a.: Mr. Arvind Kejriwal,
CM, Delhi

Subject: Please go through the ATTACHED order of the Delhi Government, F.18 (101)/UD/Pig./DUDA/2015-16/Voi-II/ 878-902 dated 7.6.2016 regarding Release of funds for Execution of the Plan Scheme "Strg. and Augmentation of Infrastructure i.e. Roads, Streets Localities Streets Lights etc. in each Assembly Constituencies for the year 2016-17.

Dear Sir,

Before contesting the Delhi Assembly elections, at an RWA meet, on 15th October 2014, at the Rose Avenue, at 2 pm, you had made huge promises with the RWAs that they will be empowered, RWA Act will be made, Funds will be at the disposal of RWAs for the localized works, but after winning the Elections, you have sidelined the RWAs to such an extent, that your above order for the day to day requirements of localities, does not contain the term RWA, anywhere.

Though the order does not contain the term RWA anywhere, SHOCKINGLY, it contains the term Mohalla Sabha, as below:

4. Before executing the works under MLALAD, DUDA shall be required to open separate bank accounts for each MLA Constituency. The amount of balance fund worked out by UD Deptt. in the current proposal is to be accounted for against MLA Constituency wise by DUDA prior to the start of implementation. The works proposed to be executed under MLALAD Scheme and those proposed to be taken up through Swaraj Fund as recommended by Mohalla Sabhas should not be in conflict with each other and DUDA is to ensure that no duplicity of works is there.

5. Separate Assets registers/accounts against works of MLALAD and Mohalla Sabhas are to be maintained and needs to be continuously updated by DUDA online so that the assets created through MLALAD scheme could be distinguished. This will bring transparency in the execution of works and submission of utilization certificates.

Does it mean that you have sidelined those RWAs, whom you had promised a lot, before the Delhi Assembly elections?

Does it mean, that you do not recognize the RWAs anymore as they are the true critics & not the own party personals in the garb of Mohalla Sabha?

Looking forward to your valued reply at the earliest possible for deciding the future course of RWAs action in this regard.
