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,

B S Vohra
East Delhi RWAs Joint Front - Federation
