Delhi at sliding mode as politicians ignore city’s concernsOctober 26, 2018
The capital of India New Delhi is known as an ear of the government. People from across the nation come to Delhi and raise their voices here so that top bureaucrats and policymakers may address their concerns. But the city that houses Parliament, Niti Aayog, Supreme Court and other premium constitutional institutes itself is facing a crisis. Be it is an administrative malfunction, social menace or pollution-related issue, the capital of India is passing through one of the worst phases in its glorious historical journey. The city has practically become a chamber of poisonous gas.
So far contemporary Delhi’s issues are concerned both Narendra Modi-led Centre and Arvind Kejriwal-led state government are seemed reluctant from their prime responsibilities. Staffers of DTC Bus went on strike; workers of municipal corporations go to strike every now and then.
Unfortunately, the city is not receiving the level of governance from both poles of administration- Centre, and state. However, AAP government has done commanding working improvement of education and health system. Recently, the state government has launched ‘Door Step Delivery Service’ which is a revolutionary initiative in the governmental services. Delhiites ride off from overbilling of electricity and water but crime rate, drug menace, and pollution problems are standing still. The recent sealing of shops is another reason for unrest among Delhiites which is breeding joblessness.
As the general election is approaching, the main parties in Delhi-AAP, Congress, and BJP started blame-game. It would be interesting to see that how Delhiites will reciprocate to their political claims. Delhi is home ground of AAP party and only ruling state. The polls would be very crucial for the Kejriwal-led AAP and there would be high stake on the bet in the election for Aap. However, BJP which has emerged as undefeatable over the few months will have to defeat Aap to retain their occupation on all Lok Sabha (7) seats in Delhi. On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi-led Congress is also craving to bounce back and open its account in the state as the Grand Old party has no MP from Delhi and co-incidentally it has no MLA from the Union Territory.
