  • Pollution a major issue in upcoming polls, not statehood - Goel
Union Minister and former BJP Delhi President Vijay Goel rode a cycle with hundreds of party workers in a 7km long cycle rally in Laxmi Nagar. Goel said that instead of the full statehood, pollution would be the major issue in the upcoming polls because of which 10,000 people die every year in Delhi alone. According to a study, Delhi ranks first among 1600 polluted cities in the world.
Goel said that he would hold cycle rallies and park meetings to inform common people how Kejriwal has left them to die due to pollution by taking no remedial action in this regard.
Goel said pollution is the real issue in Delhi; full statehood is just an eyewash by Kejriwal that he is unable to deliver because he does not have complete executive powers. However, executive powers in areas like environment, education, transport, and unauthorized colonies are vested with the Kejriwal government. Goel asked if Kejriwal could not deliver in these areas, why should he be given powers of full statehood?
Goel said that PM2.5 and PM10 levels in Delhi have crossed the mark of 400, yet funds of Rs 1200 crore meant for a clean environment are lying idle with the government. Be it industrial smog, vehicles or road dust, Kejriwal has failed to act on these major contributors of Delhi’s pollution. Kejriwal could not hoodwink the people of Delhi by implementing the odd-even scheme which anyway failed to make an impact.
Goel appealed to the voters of Delhi to make the BJP victorious in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. Delhi would witness development only when the BJP is in power in both the state and in the Centre.

My vision for Delhi stems from these inspiring words of Swami Vivekanada. I sincerely believe that Delhi has enough number of brave, bold men and women who can make it not only one of the best cities.

Delhi Villages Delhi has 369 villages which, though called as Urban Villages but, continue to suffer from developmental inequalities. The basic infrastructure is in such a sorrow state that some villages

Education empowers our children, making them strong enough to look after themselves in any given situation. A large role in delivering the education is played by our educational institutions

Power is the basis of human lives and is used in almost everything we have. Hence it's vital in the interest of social development and welfare that power reaches to common citizens

Water, though being one of the most precious resources on the earth, is availabile in limited amount. Hence it's necessary that due management of the water resources is taken for the existence of life.

Healthcare The Delhi government being the major health service provider is responsible for the healthcare services in Delhi but due to lack of planning and vision of Delhi government

Delhi Villages It's ironic that our national capital Delhi, which is often termed as a world-class metro, still has over 360 under-developed villages in it. These villages are detached from the city and seem unaware of the tremendous progress all around them.

Youth Development Youth is the backbone of our country's progress and we all need to work towards their overall development. Apart from providing training & employment in traditional careers I have always encouraged active youth participation in politics.

Education is a progressive discovery of our ignorance. Hence it's imperative in the interest of societal development that its children and youth are well educated. It's a shame that Delhi despite being the capital of India is not fully literate whereas a small state like Kerala has attained 100% literacy.

Water is vital for the existence of life but we need to realize that like all the other resources it is not unlimited and, going by the experts' opinion, the next war could be fought because of it.

Housing To own a home, irrespective of the size, is a dream cherished by many. I understand this sentiment and that is why I championed the cause to help protect the applicants who were promised homes and felt cheated by the Delhi government.

Power is one of the basic amenities of life happens to be a matter of great concern for the citizens of Delhi. Faulty meters, power shortage and inflated power bills are the most common grievances faced by every other citizen.


I believe the youth is the backbone of our country's progress and I have always worked towards their overall development.


Chandni Chowk I have a keen interest in exploring and learning about culture, traditions and Heritage. Chandni Chowk, my former parliamentary constituency, is a perfect example of the multicultural and multi-religious India.
