Transport

The Delhi government claims that it has improved the transport facility in Delhi. However, for the past ten consecutive years, the Delhi government has not been able to add more buses. Delhi's total bus fleet is 4000 as against a sanctioned strength of 11,000 as mandated by the Delhi High Court. Not to forget, AAP promised in run up to Delhi assembly polls to add introduce at least 5000 new buses to the city fleet in five years. Same is the case with other promises; where are the unified transport authority and ring rail service that CM Kejriwal had promised to the people of Delhi.
 
The AAP government collects 'Environment compensation charge' from goods vehicles entering the city, also called as Green Tax, for augmenting public transport. Rs 829 crore Green tax is lying idle with the Kejriwal government but it could spend only Rs 93 lakhs. Another Rs 500 Crore collected as cess on every litre of diesel sold since 2008 is also lying unspent. But despite explicit directions from the Supreme Court, money collected from the cess levied on goods vehicles has not been spent on roads, public transport and cycle tracks.
 
The fact is that CM Arvind Kejriwal has no roadmap to resolve the woes in transport sector. As a result, the number of private vehicles has shot up causing great increase in traffic congestion and air pollution. But instead of providing a robust public transport, Chief Minister of Delhi implements Odd-Even mainly for publicity, sensationalism and stunt. Analysis of the Odd-Even scheme showed that instead of bringing down the number of vehicles on the road, it proved as a boon to 2nd hand car dealers as their sales went up exponentially. Worse the scheme increased the PM2.5 levels defeating the objective of the scheme. Besides, it created massive constraint on the public transport system in Delhi, which was not envisaged to cater to such a large number of people. The iconic Delhi Metro was choked to the hilt in commuting passengers as it did not have the necessary wherewithal to deal with such a war like situation. Just to satisfy one man's ego, 1.3 Crore people were subjected to undue hardships and yet the scheme was being lauded by the AAP. If the scheme was indeed so popular then what was the need of a 100cr publicity budget for the scheme? To bring the facts out, we carried out a survey with a bigger sample size of 4800 people. The findings revealed that about two-third of the respondents termed the scheme a “failure”, and additional 31 percent didn’t want it to continue as a permanent feature. Interestingly, of the people who wanted it to continue forever, 22 percent felt no decrease in air pollution.

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

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.

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.
