Villages



Delhi has 369 villages which are, though, called as Urban Villages but continue to suffer from developmental inequalities. The basic infrastructure is in such a sorrow state that some villages lack even the basic facilities of dispensary, first aid or maternity home. There are no sufficient schools for higher education and whatever small numbers of schools are there, happen to face huge shortage of teachers. The quality of teaching is being deteriorated increasingly, resulting into the school showing poor performance in board exams.
 
Transport is another area which needs urgent attention. The bus services in villages are not regular and if it comes to describing roads, the lesser the better. Villages continue to face water shortage; they get water through tankers on weekly/biweekly basis. The groundwater level is decreasing every year by 20-30 feet, as a result of which both lands and farmers' lives are being destroyed.
 
Several villages have seen no Chakbandi (redistribution of land) since 1908, causing huge scarcity of land for the residential/commercial purposes. The sections 81, 33 and 65A of Delhi Land Reforms Act have become a tool for exploiting the farmers. As per section 33, a farmer can't sell his land if its size is less than 8 acres. Either he has to sell his entire land or can't sell anything. More than 4000 cases are pending, under the section 81, in the Mehrauli block alone.
 
Following are some of the remedial measure:
  • Augmenting the Lal Dora area of villages
  • Exempting residential units in villages from paying house tax
  • Minimum taxes for commercial buildings
  • Applying market rates on acquisition of village land
  • Making Delhi villages exempted from building bye-laws

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.

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.
