Expecting to meet the CM today - Sanitation crisis of East Delhi !

4th October 2018

Mr. Arvind Kejriwal,
CM, Delhi

Subject: Strike of the Sanitation workers in east Delhi

Dear Sir,

The situation of East Delhi is worsening day by day. It is the 23rd day of the strike of the Sanitation workers and the entire east Delhi is stinking with the Garbage littered all over. It's the alarming stage now as the residents of this part of the city are expecting the spread of some epidemic in the coming days. Please view some of our tweets as below:

It is shocking that no one is willing to listen. 

We met the EDMC persons and they have told us very clearly, that they have received only Rs 590 crores from the Delhi Govt, while they have a due of Rs. 2,541.98 crores, for this year only, from the Delhi Government and hence they don't have the funds.

We met our Dy CM Mr. Manish Sisodia, 8 days ago and he said that all the due amount has already been paid. He promised to send the details of the payments done to the EDMC, but so far we are still awaiting the details.

Today, we are coming for a meeting with you with the high hopes for the City that is facing the worst ever crisis. On this 23rd day of the sanitation workers strike, things look horrible, giving the impression that probably, east Delhi is not a part of the National Capital. Shockingly, it has happened for the 8th time in a row, in a span of four years, while nothing constructive has been done to resolve the issue permanently. 

Therefore, can we expect from you, that being the CM of the entire city, you will come forward immediately, to rescue the eastern part of Delhi, from the clutches of the forthcoming epidemic?

Sir, You don't have any financial problem as, by the grace of the GST & Petrol, your revenues are already on the peak. In such circumstances, the small sums of a few hundred crores don't matter much to your Govt., but it can definitely stop the situation from deteriorating further.

May we request you to please share with us the details of Total payments due to the EDMC & actual payments made by the Delhi Government to EDMC to counter the claims of EDMC that they have got only Rs. 590 crores from you?

Moreover, we would like you to move forward for a Unified MCD so that this problem is resolved permanently, as there seems no other alternative, while the residents of EDMC are truly fed up of the routine strikes of the sanitation workers.

Looking forward to a Positive reply from the leader who had been voted to power by the entire city, with the absolute majority. 

With best regards,

B S Vohra,
East Delhi RWAs Joint Front - Federation
