Delhi CM @ArvindKejriwal asks BJP’s new EDMC Mayor to do away with corruption and ensure salary payments

Mayor of East MCD calls on Chief Minister Mr. Arvind Kejriwal

  • EDMC has huge sources of income, but because of corruption its finances are in a mess
  • Where is the money being given to MCDs by the Delhi government for salaries going?: CM Questions Mayor

The Mayor of East MCD Ms. Neema Bhagat called on the Chief Minister, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, on Thursday at the Delhi Secretariat. Chief Minister Mr. Kejriwal and the Mayor discussed the working of the East MCD.

The Chief Minister heard the Mayor’s demands patiently and listed out several issues which plagued the East MCD.

“EDMC has huge sources of income, but because of corruption its finances are in a mess. I have seen the accounts of East MCD; there is massive corruption in the EDMC. East MCD must do away with corruption to make it financially viable,” the Chief Minister told the Mayor.

Commenting on the issue of funds of East MCD, the CM said, “Delhi Government has released all funds to the MCDs which it is supposed to release under the existing finance commission. Where is all the money going? Why are the sanitation staffs not being paid salaries regularly? Where is the money being given to MCDs by the Delhi government for salaries going?,” the CM questioned.

EDMC is plagued by parking mafia, advertising/hoarding mafia. Illegal hoardings and illegal parking must be done away with, which will in turn increase the revenue of MCDs manifold, the Chief Minister told the Mayor of East MCD.

The Chief Minister said that the day MCDs do away with corruption, they will not only become financially healthy, the city will also move towards a clean and organised one.

नौकरी योग्यता से मिलती है, सिफारिश से नहीं : मनीष सिसोदिया

–        आईटीआई,जहांगीर में आयोजित ऑटोमोबाइल जॉब फेयर में बोले शिक्षा मंत्री

नई दिल्ली। आज का फंक्शन उन लोगों को जवाब है जो सिफारिश से नौकरी चाहते हैं। नौकरी योग्यता से मिलती है, सिफारिश से नहीं। आज मैं बहुत खुश हूं कि आईटीआई के हमारे बच्चों को उनके कैंपस से ही नौकरी मिल रही है।

आईटीआई जहांगीर पुरी में आयोजित ऑटोमोबाइल जॉब फेयर में दिल्ली के उपमुख्यमंत्री और शिक्षा मंत्री मनीष सिसोदिया ने ये बात कही।

अपने अनुभव साझा करते हुए उन्होंने कहा, “मैं लोगों से रोजाना सुबह अपने घर पर मिलता हूं। लोग तरहतरह के काम लेकर आते हैं। लेकिन सबसे ज्यादा लोग जिस चीज के लिए मेरे पास आते हैं वो है नौकरी। लोग ये उम्मीद करते हैं कि मैं मंत्री हूं तो नौकरी लगवा दूं। उनकी अपेक्षा रहती है कि मैं किसी बड़ी कंपनी वाले को फोन कर दूं कि मेरे फलां आदमी को नौकरी में लगा लो। लेकिन अगर कोई मेरे कहने पर किसी एक को भी नौकरी दे देगा तो फिर किसी दिन वह मेरे से करोड़ों रुपये का ठेका मांगेगा। इसलिए पिछले दो साल से मैंने कभी किसी की नौकरी के लिए सिफारिश नहीं की।

मनीष सिसोदिया ने कहा कि आईटीआई संस्थानों के लिएलर्न एंड अर्नस्कीम बनाई गई है। दुनिया भर में इस तरह की स्कीम्स बहुत पॉपुलर हैं। हमने ब्राजील जैसे कई देशों में देखा है कि ऐसे कोर्सेस में क्लास की पढ़ाई 30 फीसदी होती है और बाकी 70 फीसदी फील्ड ट्रेनिंग होती है। हम अपने यहां भी धीरेधीरे यही सिस्टम ला रहे हैं। इससे हम अपने यहां लगभग तीन गुना ज्यादा बच्चों को पढ़ा पाएंगे और इंडस्ट्री की जरूरत भी पूरी हो सकेगी।

शिक्षा मंत्री ने ये भी कहा कि हमारे यहां आईटीआई और इस तरह के प्रोफेशनल कोर्सेस इसलिए ज्यादा पॉपुलर नहीं हैं क्योंकि इनसे आगे की पढ़ाई का रास्ता बंद हो जाता है। हमने देखा है कि दुनिया के जिन देशों में इन कोर्सेस को करने के बाद आगे की पढ़ाई का रास्ता साफ है वहां के बच्चे ऐसे कोर्सेस में ज्यादा एडमिशन लेते हैं। हम ऐसी व्यवस्था करने की कोशिश कर रहे हैं कि मान लीजिए अगर आपने आईटीआई या इस तरह का कोई अन्य प्रोफेशनल कोर्स कर लिया है और आगे फिर इंजीनियरिंग की पढ़ाई करना चाहते हैं तो इन दो साल की पढ़ाई भी उस कोर्स में काउंट की जाए।

Delhi CM @ArvindKejriwal to push demands of 16 Dhobi Ghats to NDMC from licensing and Ghat renovation

  • Delegation of Pradhans of 16-Dhobi Ghats of NDMC area calls on CM
  • Delegation presents a charter of demands to the Chief Minister
  • Chief Minister agrees to all demands of the delegation and assures all cooperation in future.

 

A delegation of Pradhans and their representatives of 16-Dhobi Ghats in the New Delhi Municipal Council area called on Chief Minister Mr. Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday at the Delhi Secretariat. The delegation presented a set of demands before the Chief Minister during the meeting.

Putting up their demand, the delegation raised the issue of transfer and renewal of their licences. “License can be transferred from father to his son only when the father dies. However, in many cases the father gets too old and is unable to work, but the transfer is not done. This should be changed and the license should be transferred with an undertaking/affidavit when the holder wants it,” requested one of the members of the delegation. The Chief Minister agreed to it and said that he will push it with the NDMC and do his best to get it done.

The delegation also raised the issue of no new licences being issued for a long time now. The Chief Minister said that he agreed with it and would propose it before the NDMC.

Taking note of the renovation of Ghats and complaints of sub-standard works the Chief Minister said, “Now onwards the contractor will be paid the amount meant for renovation only after the Ghat Committees approves the work done and are satisfied with the standard of the work done.”

On the demand of a mother committee of all the 16-ghats committees, the Chief Minister said that it was a good idea and will make the co-ordination with the NDMC easier.

Mr. Kejriwal also asked them to keep informing him of the works being done and other issues at a regular interval.

Delhi Government celebrates Environment day; vows to learn from Swedish turnaround on air pollution

Mr. Hussain underlined the importance of theme of this year’s World Environment Day ‘Connecting People to the Nature’. He said that this year’s theme can be put into practice by involving children, their parents, relatives and public with plantation and environment awareness campaigns.

Mr. GopalRai termed the air pollution as an invisible enemy of mankind and emphasised on effective tackling by the society. He recalled Delhi Govt.’s successful campaigns – Car Free Day and Odd Even Scheme. The said campaigns were found to be quite effective in spreading the message of pollution control and environment sensitivity. These campaigns were also appreciated by the various countries and experts.

Mr. Rai further said that such campaigns could not have succeeded without the active participation of the public especially children, their parents and teachers.

The Development Minister enlightened the gathering by giving the background of environment degradation and pollution conditions prevailing in Sweden when it was decided by United Nations to start celebrating World Environment Day on 05th June, 1972. He further said that the circumstances prevailing in Sweden were similar to the ones which Delhi is facing presently. By concerted efforts of Govt. as well as public, Sweden was able to combat air pollution and turn itself into one of the greenest countries in the World. This initiative enabled Sweden’s capital being declared as Europe’s Environment Capital sometime back.

Mr. Rai urged the people to take up fight against pollution in the similar manner and he expressed his confidence that Delhi could also turn around and emerge as one of the leading environment friendly city.

He asked children to put in more efforts during vacations for plantation and environment friendly activities as they are the ones who would need more clean and green Delhi when they grow up. He assured all help and guidance on behalf of the Delhi Govt., for increasing green cover of Delhi.

A book on ‘Butterflies of Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary – A Field Guide’ compiled by Conservation Education Centre and the Department of Forests and Wildlife was also released on the occasion.

Delhi Government celebrates Ch. Brahm Prakash, Delhi’s first CM who advocated a strong Delhi state

DELHI CELEBRATES 99TH BIRTH ANNIVERSARY OF 1ST CHIEF MINISTER OF DELHI CH. BRAHM PRAKASH.

·        CHIEF MINISTER, DELHI SHRI ARVIND KEJRIWAL PAYS FLORAL TRIBUTES TO THE VETERAN LEADER.

·        THE DREAM OF CH. BRAHM PRAKASH FOR A STRONG STATE OF DELHI WILL BE FULFILLED – SHRI KEJRIWAL.

·        YEAR 2018 WILL BE CELEBRATED AS CENTENARY YEAR OF CH. BRAHM PRAKASH – SHRI RAM NIWAS GOYAL.

 

Dated : 16/06/2017

            The Chief Minister of Delhi Shri Arvind Kejriwal today led the Delhilies in paying tributes to the veteran freedom fighter and first Chief Minister of Delhi late Choudhary Braham Prakash in a function organized by Delhi Legislative Assembly at Old Secretariat.  Shri Kejriwal paid floral tributes at the statue of Ch. Braam Prakash at Old Secretariat complex.  Speaker, Delhi Assembly Shri Ram Niwas Goyal, Health Minister Shri Satyendar Jain, Minister of water, art & culture, SC-ST welfare and Tourism, Shri Rajendra Pal Gautam, a number of MLAs and eldest son of late Ch. Braham Prakash Shri Suresh Chaudhary, freedom fighters and followers of the late leader also paid tributes to Ch. Brahm Prakash.

            Remembering the role of Ch. Braham Prakash for overall development of Delhi, Shri Kejriwal said that Ch. Braham Prakash strived and struggled for   upliftment & development of Delhi as a ‘Greater Delhi’ and make it a State with full powers.  He tried his best to make Delhi  by adding some of the areas from the neighbouring States for making Delhi – as a bigger State in size but his dream for the same could not be fulfilled as the ‘States Reorganization Commission’ rejected the proposal and gave its adverse report.  He wanted to make Delhi a State with full powers.   Shri Arvind Kejriwal said that his Government will fight for making his dream true for making Delhi as a strong State with full powers.

Shri Kejriwal said that Ch. Brahm Prakash participated in the freedom movement and was imprisoned many times during freedom struggle.   He was known for his co-operative movement in Delhi.  He struggled a lot for the upliftment of the villages and for improving the conditions of the farmers and that is why he was known as ‘Lion of Delhi.’  The cause of depressed sections of the society, rural development and empowerment of the weaker sections were issues which were very close to the heart of Chaudhary Brahm Prakash.  He was quick to realise the potential of cooperative societies in mitigating the hardship of the village folks.  As early as in 1945, he started organizing village and agriculture cooperatives.  He was also a proponent of the Panchayati Raj institutions.  He organized the National Union of Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Minorities in 1977 to work for the welfare of these weaker sections.

Shri Kejriwal said that his govt. has erected a life- size statue of Ch. Brahm Prakash in Brahm Prakash Ayurvedic Sansthan at Khera Dabar in Delhi last year to perpetuate his memory.

Speaker Delhi Assembly Shri Ram Niwas Goyal said that the year 2018 will be celebrated as the Centenary year of Ch. Brahm Prakash in his memory.
