Goel to hold meetings in parks to reveal step-motherly treatment meted out to municipal corporations
Goel to release white paper on excesses committed on municipal corporations

New Delhi, May 18, 2019:  Union Minister and former BJP Delhi President Vijay Goel wrote a letter today to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and said that the financial health of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation is deteriorating because of the Delhi government and as a result, there are not enough funds to pay even the salaries to the employees, and doctors and teachers are forced to go on strike. 
Goel said in his letter that Dy. Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Health Minister Satyendra Jain have been sitting on the files and the first installment of the budgetary funds to the municipal corporations in the new financial year is still to be received. The East Delhi Municipal Corporation should have received Rs 142 crore for education, Rs 207 crore for basic tax assignment, Rs 25 crore for sanitation and about Rs 11 crore for education in the April-June 2019 quarter. 
Similarly, Rs 150 crore to East Delhi MCD, Rs 300 crore to North Delhi MCD and Rs 225 crore to South Delhi MCD should have been received every month for paying salaries. 
Your M B Branch of Urban Development Ministry had written a letter to Chairman of the standing committee of the East Delhi MCD in December 2018, saying the Delhi government started a new scheme for the municipal corporation, under which Rs 1000 crore has been provisioned so that the municipal corporation could improve the roads. Yet not a single penny has been received so far. 
Delhi government is giving step-motherly treatment to the three MCDs by not releasing the funds on time because the Aam Aadmi Party could not form its government in these municipal corporations. However, this does not mean the funds meant for public welfare are stopped. This is directly affecting the people of Delhi for which only the Delhi government is responsible. 
Goel said that if the people of Delhi has given you the responsibility of running the Delhi government and the responsibility of the municipal corporation to us, it should not be linked to electoral politics. Our priorities should be to carry out development in Delhi. Goel said the Delhi government should provide details of the funds released to the MCDs.
Goel said if the Delhi government does not release funds on time, he would conduct meetings in parks in mornings to inform the people of Delhi about the excesses committed by the Delhi government and how the Delhi government is not letting the MCDs work so that the BJP gets humiliated in public.
Goel said he would soon release a white paper on the step-motherly treatment meted out to the MCDs by the Delhi government. 

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.
